It looks hard, but its really quite simple, in fact you can’t make a mistake.
You will begin with a print of a photo of shoes which is fused and ironed to a background.
Assemble the quilt and free motion stitch as if you are drawing.
But there are a few tricks to learn…. you will astound your friends and marvel at the results.

Requirements.A 10” X 8” picture of a pair of shoes printed on fabric.
A colored photo of the same image.
A 10” X 8” piece of fusible web. (steam a seam lite single)
