Dunelm Patchwork sofas...

Decided l needed to make a start, at least decide on which fabrics l was going to use and how l was going to put them together...blocks of or do a really patchwork. Still not sure on the how but made decision on which fabrics....1 STRIPE (main fabric) 2 SPOTS and a BROCADE

But do l go mad add more fabrics and patchwork all the fabrics together in random shapes?
use the main stripe as the big areas and the spots as edges? 
one side of stripes and the one in spots with the brocade and second stripe as the edges?

cut all the pieces (for one sofa) fabric for each piece then decide on making it more patchwork or keep the panels in a single fabric?

At least l've actually made a start
Have a thoughtful Thursday
hugs to all x
