"Bling" the Last Shoe

"Bling" is the fanciest shoe in my "Imelda's Dream" quilt. It is made from an antique piece of hand-beaded and sequined lace that was in my lace collection. I hesitated to cut that wonderful lace apart. However, it was unseen and unappreciated hidden away in a drawer.This quilt, "Imelda's Dream" is currently exhibited at MB Gallery in Chicago, Illinios.All photos are clickable for you to view a larger version in a separate window.
