I had this psychedelic shoe fabric that I wanted to use and thought that this just might work in this block for the corner squares. The shoes would have been too chopped up in the strip portion of the block. Once I got the block finished I wished I had cut out a shoe from the shoe fabric for the small centre block, but too late and I wasn't about to rip everything out just for one little block. I followed the instructions from the web site but I had problems with the long narrow strips stretching some even though I did starch the fabric. Still a fairly easy block to piece despite the stretching.
