I absolutely love this idea sent in by one of my readers in my latest contest. My wedding gown was lost years ago when my basement was flooded but If I still had it I'd consider doing this.
"About 10 yrs ago I took my wedding gown and made squares out of it and made 3 sml quilts for my 3 kids. They came out very nice. I thought it was better to use it than keep it in my closet. It made some nice keepsakes for my kids."
