I finally made a start and would like to share some pictures with you, I couldn't decide on the fabrics so went out and bought some new once.
I use charcopy paper and draw the trace just the bare minimum on to my block for placement of the applique pieces. For a leave just a line down the centre, for a circle or berry just a small cross, stems again centre line down. any other pieces I trace about a 1/8th inside the lines to make sure I cover markings with the applique.
Have a great week.
