Quilt Design Shows up in Footwear

Flight Patterns in the design on hand-painted footwear.

My new daughter-in-law, Stephanie Morgan,  recently honored me and my quilt design. The quilt pattern used in my award winning quilt "Flight Patterns" was painted on a pair of  canvas shoes by  her friend Alyssa Kulik. Ms. Kulik gave the shoes to Stephanie as a gift for being a bridesmaid in her wedding. It was so fun for me to see my quilt pattern gracing footwear. Hmmmm...... could be a new direction for quilters!

If was fun to see my design repeated on Stephanie's shoes.

This is Flight Patterns hanging at the AQS show in Lancaster. The design was inspiration for Stephanie's hand painted shoes.

I have been busy quilting but I just haven't completed any projects lately. Currently I have four quilt projects going simultaneously. Sometimes I like to work in this fashion. That way when I get stuck with a design on one quilt I just move over to a different project until I am enlightened with an idea on how to move on. Hopefully I will have a completed project to share in the near future.

"Fireworks over Millennium Park" hanging at the Community Arts Center in Danville, Kentucky.

I also wanted to share a photo of me and my quilt "Fireworks over Millennium Park." This quilt was part of a quilt exhibit hosted by our local Community Arts Center in Danville, Kentucky. This small town arts center does a great job of promoting all types of art and has different exhibits each months. There is also a lecture series that happens each month and summer art camps for kids.   Lessons in all types of music, dance, painting, drawing are sponsored by the center as well as being the venue for the  occasional wedding reception. We are lucky to have such a great arts center is our town. I was so happy to have a quilt in the home town quilt exhibit.


  1. What a special gift for you daughter-in-law. You never know when a potential product extension will appear.

  2. How awesome to see your quilt design on shoes! Love those wonky flying geese on the sides. A true Joni Morgan original!
