|You can see the pin is placed in the tip of the leaf to match each layer.|
Once we found the repeat and cut sections that match, then we had to layer each piece on top of each other and try to get them to match perfectly! We used a pin and one spot on the pattern to match as well as like the old flip books we used to make as children, we flipped the fabric up and down. The book has great instructions and there are great videos on you tube.
The next step was to cut strips 6 1/4" wide then cut those strips into 6 1/4" square. Then cut the squares on the diagonal to make triangles. When cutting the triangles it is important not to cut similar squares on the same diagonal so you get different patterns.
|It's important to keep all the same triangles pinned together.|
|The white background is wishy washy.|
|Now the star pops!|
|This is the same "star" but with a different orientation (switched points to the center). I like the design created in the "star" above.|
