What advice would you give someone starting this project? You'll find complete instructions beginning on p 55 of this class's downloadable bonus eBook "rotary Cutting Revolution" (see "Materials" tab.) Our classmate, "Iminei" forged ahead and made a sample herself before I even posted this project of mine.

How do directional fabric work with this Anita. In my NWWB I originally cut a Large Leaf piece out but didn't much like the way it went. Did I mix the pieces up ordoes it not matter???

Hard to believe but the directionality will always be maintained. If you are tempted to cut fabric (as a test) (say stripe fabric) try this: photocopy a piece of fabric and cut that up.. Save $ :-) I have even sewn/taped paper patches rather than waste 'good' fabric to test my ideas.
