What materials did you use? 100% cotton Wizard of Oz fabric

I'm a novice quilter. Fell in love with this material. Once I cut out the squares can you give me direction on getting them on the background?

I also am a relative novice, so I can only tell you how I did it. I decided how big I wanted the project and laid out the blocks that I had cut, leaving spaces between them. I then measured the spaces and cut strips from my background fabric adding about an inch to allow for seam allowances and mistakes in measurements. I started by adding the strips (called sashing) to the centre block. Then attached the side blocks to gather and added to the centre block. Then I created rows for the top and bottom and added these to the centre block. After that I added the border strips.

Hello! I've had some of this fabric for a couple months, a friend of mine is absolutely mad for the Wizard of Oz. I've been at a bit of a loss how to go about it with all odd shaped squares. Seeing this has given me a good start on ideas! Lovely job too by the way

Many thanks. My friend is also mad for the Wizard of Oz. Suggestion - use a background fabric to make some of the shapes the same size. I used the yellow and the poppy fabric. I look for ward to seeing your completed project.

Unfortunately it is not for sale. My girlfriend loves it and it was made for her.
