|Numerous narrow strips of the plaid were cut and then sewn back together staggering the repeats, until a large enough piece was created for the valance pattern.|

|So I cut that section open and spread it out-|
|And inserted a narrow piece so the seam fell in an area where it wouldn't show.|
|Here's the valance all cut out, fully lined with bias fabric.|
