This sure is a bit tricky. I started with the decision around how many segments I need. Generally, the more - the nicer (i.e. 13) but I went with only 7 which is faster yet not as nice.
You then attach the segment in the middle which is the largest piece. It has 4 feet on one end (above the window) and maybe 2 to 3 feet on the other. You then work your way to the side by cutting the banana peel shaped segments and attaching them.
