I've been struggling with the bricks for the shoe quilt, finally decided to try a layered approach. I've dyed the base fabric so it's a sort of yellow off white colour, then used acrylic paint to get the shape of the bricks. I'm going to layer tulle and some of the fabric I dyed earlier in the week to highlight some of the areas, then quilt on top.

No idea if it's going to work, but I'm a huge fan of trial and error so I'm happy with how it's going so far.
