My friend Sylvia in Devon is a master at patchwork so I began by asking her a bit of advice about sorting out where to start first.
I then made a graph paper plan which became Plan A
On to Plan C then because wanting to use every last inch of material meant increasing my layout.
Hubby came in useful by cutting 24 pieces of paper all exactly the same size which I then pinned to my 8 gorgeous pieces of material. The dreaded bit was next - cutting.
Yay! All cut. I then laid them out on the floor and began to shuffle them into a decent arrangement.
I pinned 4 pieces together for each if the 6 rows and have just finished tacking them.
I may be some time.
