Painted Quilts made easy for you!!

The Shoe Quilt Story

Click audio arrow to get the right atmosphere!

Here is a photo of my hand painted shoe quilt. It is called “Head over Heels!”  

I have developed patterns for folks who have seen and love my Head over Heels! shoe quilt. There is a very stylish uptown shoe hand painted in the middle of each square.  I’ve written some really detailed instructions, which are going to make this project fun even for a beginner. If you love to color and shade and outline the pictures…you would love painting on fabric to make your own quilt blocks! 

Head over Heels!

If you don’t have the confidence or the desire to paint your own squares, ….well lucky you!!  You will be able to purchase my custom designed fabrics. This is such a different avenue than painting your own fabric squares, but may be more suitable for many quilters/crafters.  You can end up with a quilt as elegant and unique as the one pictured, with only the usual quilting and embellishing you do to make any quilt. This digitally printed Quilt Store Quality fabric can be cut into nine 12 inch squares. I cut mine into 10.5″ x 12″ blocks, so that the quilt would be rectangular.  I also made wider sashing top and bottom of the blocks to add to that rectangular shape. You simply add your own sashing and borders to have a real work of art for the shoe lovers in your life!! When you’re through with the quilting, pick out embellishments to make this an even more personal work of art!!

So, here is the fabric panel that you can purchase and

use to make your very own quilt!

Panel of 9 shoes with bonus fabric

I also have available another wonderful exclusive design, based on each of the shoes in the panel. I have it available on a white background only. I feel it will make beautiful sashing or border. This print is on 4 ounce Quilt Store Quality cotton and it is a whopping 46 inches wide!!  Each shoe is about two inches. Note they are copies of all shoes on the painted panel.

  1. I don’t know anything about quilting. Is this feasible for me?

  2. DARLING <3
    Love it

  3. I cannot believe how beautiful these are!

  4. I had no idea you were so talented in this area. I love your quilt. I would think it would be a shoe-in in any competition. It’s too bad we are hot all the time. I don’t know if the shoe pattern would go with our “decor”. You have any designs featuring lizards and scorpions? They’d be more appropriate here than fashion shoes.

  5. OH Susan … don’t let your newbie status scare you on this! The joy is that Jeannie has most of the work done for you … and you have some very simple sewing to put it all together for one dynamite quilte!!! YOU can definiltey “pull it off”!!!!!!!!!!! Good Luck!!!!

    I’m looking forward to see all the variations that get showcased on the Quilting Board!! :)

  6. Oh my gosh – I am sooooo excited. I am very much a newbie quilter so this might be very much out of my league but I am thrilled that you are selling custom designed fabric!!!! My daughter will absolutely adore and cherish a shoe quilt if I am able to pull it off LOL Thank you so much!!
