Bias lining

Suzie of Cottages To Castles wanted a bias cuff and jabot lining on a Pate-Meadows Cuff-Top Valance. 
So it made sense to line the entire valance on the bias.

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.

Oops, a seam falls right in the middle of one of the cuff areas-
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.
