The template was drawn onto freezer paper. Cut out.
Strips were sewn together. Use the template to mark and cut out the zig zag strip. Make four.
All of the strips get attached to the edges where they need to be attached. (This looks a little misshaped because of a tray I have uber the part where I'm sewing.)
Since the center seams are already sewn, the outer edges get stitched on. If I work on it each day, I plan to have this part done by the weekend.
Thanks, Happy Appliquer, for your border construction idea! It worked great! And thank you, Esther Aliu, for the amazing pattern. I'm so inspired and love sitting in a comfy chair while sewing for a change!

Another project I have going is the Bargello Lone Star. This top is a beauty and I'll be excited to have her together. I laid the sections out to see what it looks like. Ain't she pretty? I love it!
What are you sewing this winter?
