    I didn't know whether to start a new thread or add to the one where I posted a photo of the first painted blue shoe...at any rate...here is the green sandal. Two down 7 to go!! I will use black with white dots for sashing.

    Just looked at Blk #1. They are both so fantastic. Can't wait to see the complete quilt. How big will it be?

    Size, hmmm, let's see, each shoe block is cut 12". I will probably use 3" sashing, and a six inch border, so that's about 58 " square, unless I decide on a 2 x 3 layout to get it to be rectangular. In that case it will be 44 x 58. I just want it to be lap size.

    Do you like to color?? I trace the pattern on with graphite paper, onto the fabric. I use So Soft Paints by Deco Art and they are wonderful for quilting on them, thru them, or whatever. I am not a "draw-er"... at all. I look at the color photo and mix paints until I get the colors I need. If you enjoy coloring, that's really all this is, using acrylic paints.

    And yes, please do keep posting the pics ... perhaps label each thread as you have with the Shoe #, for those who jump in in mid stream!

    so soft paints..... I;ll have to look for them. I love ur "coloring"
    I know years ago, I paint a # of items... the paint laundryied well but was stuff and difficult to sew/quilt. It once the paint dried it was like card board, hard and stiff....

    U have tested? they are washable????

    keep up the good work!!!
