First off, I usef different sized strips of white and different size strips of color. The fat strip on the left is cut at 2" - and the skinny strip on the right is cut 1.5"
Above photo you see the skinny 1.5" color strip in the middle that will be our center row for our mini 9 patch.
Now, It's time to cut off some sections. Rows for the 9patch. We'll start with the strip set on the right and cut them into 2" segments. These will be the top and bottom rows of the 9patch aka row 1 and row 3.
ready to press open .....Yes, all three rows are together - you can't see them all from the photo but that center skinny row is under there. Trust me :)
I hope you were able to follow along and understand about where to place 1.5" strips and where to have 2" strips. Once you get the hang of that - everything else is easy! :)
