The exception to using the framing square is evident in a couple of these pictures. You can plainly see that when I put the framing square on the fabric, I'm not following the weave of the fabric. If I cut the fabric using a ruler, it would look like the devil. Whenever there is a definite weave with horizontal lines, vertical lines, or both in the fabric, that's what you should follow. Ignore the ruler and cut by the weave of the fabric. The first picture shows the fabric blanks that will be used for the inserts on both the seat back and the bottom seat, and all are notched on the top right corner. I will need to keep the notches towards the top of the seat back, and going towards the rear of the seat bottom. After I glue the fabric blanks to the sew foam, I will put an arrow on the back to indicate which end should be up.
