A bit more progress

This is how I am marking the fabric pieces. I traced all the pieces on paper, and cut them out. I pin and trace around each piece so I have the sewing line marked. Then I measure 1/4" away for the cutting line. I use a rotary cutter to cut each piece out. Oh, I also starched each piece of fabric so there is less stretching.

You can see the marks on the second picture. It really helps to have the seam lines marked, and the little tick marks to match one piece to another. It's a bit tedious, but gets the job done.

Here is what I have pieced so far.I Not too exciting yet, but I think it will look good when it's done. The green is just laying on the mountains at the moment. I'm too tired to sew it right now. More tomorrow after work.

Very pretty, I wonder what it is all going to look like? I will have to check later.

That banner is going to be fabulous when it is done. I'll be watching you progress with a lot of interest. I have that book you were taking about, but haven't had the courage to try anything yet.
