Here's the finished block! This is a paper pieced pattern by Sonja Callaghan and was published in issue #3 of Quiltmaker 100 Blocks magazine. I have wanted to make this block since I first saw it. It stirs up a very strong memory of having new magical white shoes!
This is my memory of beautiful shiny white shoes. It's a damaged (old!) photo but you can see the shoes.
I'm the one on the left. My cousin had her own idea of how the bouquet should be held! I remember we also debated how high the knee socks could be stretched and I'm sure there are some photos somewhere of the socks covering my knees! I love this photo and all the memories associated with that day.

I find that a little paper piecing goes a long way for me and now that I've had my fix, I won't be tempted again for a while.
