I wanted to use the whole 10x10 inch square of the large animal print on the back, so decided to 'frame' & highlight this & then used off cuts - different shaped rectangles to break up the rest of the yellow. Something like this:
I added a yellow strip to each side of the off cuts:
Framed the large print square in dark grey, and then added yellow to the width I was after:
And then began adding solid yellow strips inbetween to make up the full length I needed. As usual, I underestimated how much I would lose in seams and ended up having to add in another few coloured rectangle to make up the full length I needed.
