Mark Each Template
To help keep your project organized, mark each appliqué template with its letter designation from the pattern, grain line (if indicated), the block name, and appliqué sequence order. Put an X on edges that do not need to be turned under, such as stems that will go under a flower. Transfer the Xs to the fabric shapes when you trace around the templates. Any information you can indicate on the template helps as you make the quilting project.
