Remember this set of checkerboards? Well, it has FIVE more companion sets that need to be constructed. I had to go through all 160something DIFFERENT pieces of fabric to figure out which ones to put where.
First, organize the stacks by number designations
Then I can figure out which ones I want to cut for the boards (some of them get used in the arcs that round out the the stars). Thank goodness for Jacqueline's careful color code charts! I still got a raging headache from this task (took just about 4 hours altogether).

Once the pieces are cut for all the copies, I play around with them some more for placement.
And then get them oh-so-carefully stacked. Ready for stitching onto the papers! But I'm not going to look at these anymore today. That essay about military revolutions during the Hundred Years' War is looking so much more palatable than it did! ;D
A big Thank You to Lee for hosting WIP Wednesdays, and Esther for WOW. :D
