QUILT BLOCK FOR A SWAP



I did this several years ago. I had no pattern but played with both the high top boot and designing it. I decided to do needlelace flowers and used a very fine crochet cotton crochet thread for them. I have no idea the size because it was in a box of threads I bought at a yard sale and it had the paper torn off of it. I used a dupioni fabric for the top of the boot and a black velvet for the bottom. I love to work with beads and that trim was fun.
I pulled out the photo because I think I would like to do a smaller one for a crazy quilt and today started working on a pattern. I thought maybe you all would like to see this one and when I get a smaller one made I will be glad to share that one too.
It was a joy to make.
