It really was fun! I just took a long piece of freezer paper and drew out the design (twice...). The first time I drew it, I made it the way I wanted it to look not realizing that it would be sewn backwards. Well, I knew it, but I wasn't thinking far enough ahead. Anyway, after re-doing it, I just picked lines where I could break them into blocks, cut them all apart (about 9) and when I began sewing, I just made sure I had a 1/4" seam allowance on all the edges. Try it!
