    my version of head over heels shoe quilt

    Here is my version of the head over heels quilt ,the panel was from quilting,addict
    This was made for my neice who loves shoes, she wanted the same colors as quilting.addict made her, so I tried to find fabric that was kind of the same. I made some extra block of purses so it would be a nice size lap quilt. I thought that shoes and purses go together well.

    I did a quilt as you go on my sewing machine and I use a fleece for the back without any batting. This made a soft and warm quilt without to much weight. This was the first time I have used fleece for the back of a quilt and it was not to bad working with , I did use a spray to keep it from moving around while I was quilting it.

    Now I will see if I can upload the picture LOL not real good with this computer

    Thanks for looking

    I know a lot of young women that would just love a quilt like that... the handbags are a nice addition to your quilt. It looks nice and soft good idea about the fleece backing to make it light weight.

    I have that panel too and I may borrow your creative idea to add the bags. Nicely done!

    I so love this quilt! Adding the purses was a very nice touch. Thanks for the info on a fleece backing-will have to try that.

    I was invited, recently, to a birthday party for one of my former students. It was a traditional 15th birthday party in the Hispanic culture. One of the things that happens during a part of the ceremony is that the father goes up to the girl and changes her shoes from flats to high heels. Wouldn't this type of quilt be a perfect gift for a girlhaving this type of birthday celebration?
    Your quilt is beautiful. You did very nice work on it.

    Very pretty and feminine. I like the idea of using the fleece backing without batting.

    What kind of fleece did you use? I'm having a hard time picturing your back with the fuzzy fleece I'm accustomed to seeing. I really like the looks of it.
