    Wow, you sure jumped on this quickly!! I would definitely be interested in selling one just like this, or similar. I am working with Keepsake Quilting trying to develop a block of the month or some similar program. Keep your fingers crossed for me!! Thanks for the compliments. I'd show you the layout, but maybe I should wait for number nine to be finished...hint: it will be turquoise!!

    This is the kind of fabulous quilt that could make big bucks if marketed to the right audience.

    It's such a pleasure to see something original. Best of luck.

    My daughter would love to wear the shoes you have designed. These will certainly make a striking quilt.

    Perhaps if the Keepsake Quilting pattern doesn't work, you could have a fabric panel printed. I am sure alot of people would buy it (look how many follow your thread here).

    Here is a site that you could print the fabric, buy and sell it yourself, or let them do it for you. [url\http://www.spoonflower.com/spoonflower_fabrics[/url]

    You could design a pattern around the 9 shoes. If each block cut at 12", you could get 9 blocks from one yard panel, and have a 36" X 6" space for some coordinate (jewelry, makeup, phrases...) to use as sashing or something.

    I think that's an idea with a lot of potential. I can't draw to save my life, but I would gladly buy blocks or a panel of your drawings.

    Remember Lonni Rossi's geishas from a few years ago? It was sort of the same thing, although they were much,much bigger, and there were only a few ladies. The panels were just the outline of the women, and then you appliqued/embellished whatever and however you wanted to "dress" them.
    You started with this:
    http://marklipinskisblog.files.wordpress.com/2008/01/geisha.jpg
    and turned it into this:
    http://image69.webshots.com/69/4/83/23/2706483230061648096mJFIPR_ph.jpg

    I would gladly pay for a panel of shoe blocks like that, even at Spoonflower rates. Or smaller cuts chosen from a larger shoe "collection."
    To me, it's like specialty fabrics - marbled, hand-dyes, batik panels - that command a premium.

    Good luck with however you decide to market these.
    They really are all awesome and incredibly beautiful.
