Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes
Thanks for DD2 (for only needing one shoe liner to make her shoes fit perfectly) and to Debbie for the fabulous green and gold fabric (the photos don't do the colour justice - it's a lovely dark emerald) for helping to make this happen.
Quilt ideas come from the strangest places!
Stitching the shoe liner on, then stitching around the edges of the stencilled shapes followed (once the paint stick had cured and stopped smelling!).
Then came lots of kantha style stitching. Fun to decide which lines to echo and when to make breaks in the stitching.
And why 'Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes'? I don't know! I've always loved the song, and I think that the idea of having decorated sole 'prints' like these made me think of it again.
Fun, and I need to get on and find a place for this to hang.
Happy October sewing, everyone!
