A Free Shoe Quilt Block to Appliqué

Make this Air Jordan Training shoe block for the athlete in your life

This shoe block is meant to be done using the fusible web technique of appliqué  rather than turning under the edges and hand appliquéing. But, if you like to appliqué by hand - use your favorite technique. 

Feel free to use any raw edge appliqué techniques which you enjoy to make it more casual looking. The red-brown sole trim could be done with a satin stitch on the machine instead of appliqué. And the shoe laces could be bias trim, real shoe laces or embroidered on.

The block is meant to be an 9" finished block, but you may want to enlarge the templates to a larger size.  The little vertical bar on the drawings is (if you enlarge the templates to make an 9" block) meant to be 3 inches.

I have left off the Nike logo for sake of trademark rules, and this shoe is my own interpretation. But, for your own personal use, you certainly could put a logo on your own shoe version.

Fabric Choices? You may use solid colors as shown, or use a tone-on-tone fabric print, a black-on-black for the shoe body. Or get wild and make them in plaids and florals!
