Look in a current issue of the Moss or Victoria British catalogs (if you
have access to them!)  There are pictures of the carpet sets fully laid out
in the proper position.  If you don't have these catalogs, email me your
fax number (please include country code!).  I will try to fax you a page
that shows the carpet kit laid out.
