My favorite method of applique is traditional freezer paper with a turned edge, hand sewn. I have my freezer paper shapes, Pattern-eaze for accuracte placement, and background fabric ready. However, I'm having difficulty figuring out which fabric to use for the pieces. The pattern pieces used in the instructions are coded for your Feather Template, and I'm not sure how that corresponds to the overall pattern. For example, in Red 22018, where is 1-2 in the overall pattern? If I knew where it was in the overall pattern, I could chose the correct pattern piece from my freezer paper to use. Perhaps I'm missing something, any help would be appreciated.
Thank you for your replies. I used the picture to guess which fabric was used for each piece. Since there were only three fabrics, it was pretty easy. Could have been much clearer: an overall pattern could have had the template numbers on it, or even better would be an overall pattern with fabrics on it. Guess I'll continute to guess for the next two months.
