I've been getting requests for Shoe Blocks - so I'm having fun playing with my Electric Quilt design software designing shoe blocks. Here is the first one in 2 variations: with and without an ankle strap. Watch for more shoe blocks as I add to the collection in coming weeks.

This is a paper foundation pieced (PFP) block done in either 2 or 3 units. If you need help with PFP techniques, see the earlier articles here on this site: Part One and Part Two. Paper piecing is not difficult and it's a lot of fun to do. Or, just click on the words "Foundation Piecing" in the column at the left of this page and you'll find lots of links.

You can choose to make your shoe all one fabric as shown at the left. Or, experiment with a contrasting color for the heel of the show as shown in the sample block to the right.


I designed the block with the intention that it would be 8 inches x 8 inches, but when you print out the blocks for foundation piecing, you will need to adjust the size with a copy machine. If you decide you want to make 6" blocks or 10" blocks, just make the blocks the size you wish.
