The Strawberry Thief in SHOES!!

I love William Morris designs and now I can get them in shoes!
The pattern is the Strawberry Thief and printed by Liberty Fabrics.
The shoes are by Vans-which I haven't worn since high school!
Should I make a matching skirt with my fabric already in my stash??? :)

UFOs and New Projects

So I have been trying to finish some of my UFOs. 
Like Always!!
And in getting some crossed off of my list, I am dreaming of new projects to start.....
My DJ secret pal sent me a gift certificate to Keepsake Quilting a couple of months ago. So I finally decided on what to purchase. I chose a McKenna Ryan small wall hanging pattern that has a Wren atop a birdhouse. I also chose a new-to me-product called Inn-Spire. It is a moldable, fusible interfacing that I am going to use to make fabric bowls. 
I also *think* I am going to start a Loyal Union Sampler quilt from the new book by Jennifer Chiaverini. I ordered it yesterday, and it should ship today! What is extra special about the book is that I made 2 blocks that are included in one of the quilts in the book! 
I am so excited to receive my copy!
Another quilt that I have seen lately is the Love Entwined 1790's coverlet.
Love Entwined
It is really gorgeous but wow, that would be a lot of work!!

Toddi's T-Shirt Quilt

Toddi and Andi came to visit us here in Woodinville!
I had Toddi's T-shirt quilt ready for him to take back to Hungary.
The sashing, binding and backing are made with a fabric line called Hungarian Blue.
The batik is from scraps leftover from when I made Todd, Andi, Toddi and Grandma matching shirts.
I like how it turned out!!
