Thank you Sulabug its a cool pattern! I am nervous to get started but worst case it keeps me up at night. I will have the day tomorrow to play sewing so I will post my efforts good or bad just to share what it took and ask questions which will surely come up. I used to mark with an erasing pencil those 1/4 inch dots is that not a good idea? the kind meant for quilting in white..unless I am using white which would be a tad hard even for my non eagle eyes I am thinking of trying all these in "bali"wood colors just to make things pop a bit and well surely show where I went wrong if I do go wrong.
