I am going to give you some very simple explanations of the photos. This first is the strip set. You cut 1 1/2" strips and sew them together. You have to have two colors that go from very light to very dark. I chose green and red as you can see.
This is the fabric chart that keeps you from getting mixed up with your pieces.
Ahhhh - is what you say when you first see this monster. This chart is the "map" of what goes where. Better pay attention here. No multi-tasking on this step.
You cut the strip sets into the proper widths and remove the sections you need and sew them together in the right order, as directed by the map above.
Here is what I had last weekend. Now I have done several more rows. I want to finish this one quickly because I have to get it out of the kitchen eating area and downstairs to my sewing room. I am afraid if I move it without finishing the strips I will get hopelessly lost. I think it will be pretty cool!
