    A rectangular shape is fine, or any other for that matter. Just put a bit of curve along the edges between tie-out points for a tight pitch. Then you won't have your tarp edges flapping in the breeze.

    With this project I'd say go rectangle first, easier to align all the panels. Then if you desire cut the cats as a whole. Trying to align the individual cat cut panels and then hemming would be a disaster at best.
    If I'm reading you right, your making two panels at say 5' x 10' of different colors, then another similar panel at 5x10 and the sewing those together to make a tarp 10 x 10.
    Cats are gonna be tricky, 'specially at the seams of the panels, but it can be done.

    And the flat-fell seam is the best for making tarps or is that another preferred method
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
