Adventures of a Novelty Fabric and Selvage Obsessed Quilter

Glad you stopped by!

Shoe Quilt!

Here is the story of my entry in the festival:

I began collecting Just the Right Shoe by Raine miniature shoes a few years ago. I have my collection displayed in the entrance hall to my home in Bertby cabinets by Ikea.

Here is my version:

I added a "buckle" embelishment to each shoe.
