Adventures of a Novelty Fabric and Selvage Obsessed Quilter

Glad you stopped by!

I am a busy wife and the mom of 19 year old twins, a boy and a girl who are Sophomores at Syracuse University.

I have been quilting since the spring of 2008. I love novelty fabrics, colorful and unique.

Selvage quilting is addictive! Who knew the "junk" we cut off and threw out would be what I now save! I started a new tradition when I travel--visiting quilt stores! I particularly enjoy going to stores that have been named in the Quilt Sampler Featured Shop Lists-

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.

Once I began quilting, I knew that I had to make a shoe quilt to hang in the foyer.

I searched the internet, and luck was on my side when I found this:

Here is my version:

I added a "buckle" embelishment to each shoe.


Enjoy!
