Trace the pattern pieces on to interfacing and lay them out on your "new" fabric. I tried MANY different layouts before decided to cut. I wanted to make sure that each piece was contrasting to the one next to it. Kind of a light-dark-light thing.
Note: This is size small. I realize not everyone is a small. Size Large and up should be using Half Yard peices instead of Fat Quarters. Your layout will not look like my layout.
Cut out the pattern pieces once you have decided on the layout. I admit, it was a little painful to cut into the big chunk knowing that I was wasting alot of perfectly good zebra stripes... but I got over it.
