Because I could not find any high heel shoe fabric (except for gnarly looking Barbie shoes!), I had to hand paint each of the nine shoes for this quilt. My Goddaughter Chrissy is a shoe-a-holic...this was for her. After I finished quilting it, I embellished it with jewels, bows, etc.

This is such a neat quilt.  I am sure that your Goddaughter will love it.

WOW! Just beautiful!  You created a work of art. Chrissy should be proud beyond words!

This is great.  I did a shoe quilt several years ago from a Pam Bono pattern.  Each shoe was pieced.  This is gorgeous.

I absolutely love, love, love your shoe quilt.  That is quite a talent to be able to paint such life-like shoes.  I know your goddaughter will love it.

Gorgeous.  Would you be willing to share the pattern?  This would go beautifully with my Holly Hobbie hat quilt.  Thanks for posting.
