As you get to know me, one thing you soon learn is that I have a thing for shoes. It’s all my mother’s fault, of course! As a young girl, I desperately wanted a pair of black and white saddle shoes.
I saved my allowance until I had enough to buy them. Oh joy! I wore them until they were literally falling apart. My mother finally threw them away while I was at school one day. I was devastated and threw a royal tantrum threatening to throw away a pair of her shoes in retaliation. Ever since I’ve had a penchant for shoes – not necessarily high-end shoes (you can’t have as many if you spend a fortune!), but lots of different shoes. It’s all my mother’s fault and that’s the story I’m sticking with!
So naturally for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 2, I had to design a shoe block.
I thought they looked like shoes stacked in shoe boxes, thus the name. These shoes will never pinch your toes and come in the perfect color to match your outfit.
I’m already thinking about my block for Volume 3 – what kind of shoes should I make this time? Leave me a comment by 10am MST Friday, November 12th, and I’ll draw a random winner to receive a copy of 100 Blocks Vol. 2.
From Denise: Thanks to everyone for all of the wonderful comments and suggestions! A random winner has been selected and notified by email – but guess what? I’ve also selected two additional winners JUST BECAUSE! We just love to give things away here at the blog tour! Check out the list of all of the blog tour winners.
