Shoes, shoes and more shoes!
3 Attachment(s)
I have a niece who will graduate from law school in June. We always tease her about how much she likes shoes. I saw this fabric and couldn't resist! The top is done, it was the first time I have tried this fabric, no pattern I just looked at how they were made by some of the pictures on the QB. I even found the perfect flannel to finish the back off.

That's so cute!! I have a nephew who has more shoes than his mother and she has about 50 pair. He will buy 2-3 pair at a time.

bluesnowdoe 02-12-2015 01:33 PM

OneDoxieMom 02-12-2015 02:02 PM

sew pretty!!

jeanne49 02-12-2015 02:08 PM

Love it!! I'm with her when it comes to shoes, can't pass a shoe sale without checking it out. Believe me when I say this, if I could afford it, I'd have every pair of shoes that I've ever tried on. My sister's grandson periodically counts my shoes to see if I added to the stash.

AnnT 02-13-2015 03:42 AM

Great looking quilt. I love the 'floating' patterns.

twinkie 02-13-2015 07:07 AM

That is sew cute. I know she will love it.

MargeD 02-13-2015 09:19 AM

She is going to love it. The quilt looks like it could have been made by my DD who loves, loves, loves shoes; but I did to when I was a lot younger and single.

I just made this same illusion quilt for my new lawyer daughter. I am going to quilt it this weekend (birthday is very soon!). I liked the linear look of the illusion quilt because lawyers tend to think in a linear way. I love the shoe backing. How are you planning on quilting it? I will be doing a lot of straight lines thru the cream background (again that linear thing!). I find it a bit boring, but it is more about the person getting it than the person making it. I'll balance it with making something real wild. I have a harry potter bookcase quilt wandering thru my head!!!!!

Dee G 02-13-2015 10:41 AM

Love your quilt and what a perfect backing!

matraina 02-13-2015 05:18 PM

Oh, she will love it. I know I do.

Sandrea 02-13-2015 08:23 PM

What a cute and thoughtful gift. Love the way it looks like little rafts floating in a swimming pool. It turned out so cute. Good job!!
