Next I cut out all the other shapes. You will see by the diagram that they all are placed on or around the vine. You can place them by eye. No surgical accuracy is needed - this is simple, folk art appliqué. Just plop them down with the diagram as your guide and stitch in place.
I cut out the circle shapes out of a heavy paper or card stock. You may have card stock that you use in your home printer. If not - never fear - you will have some of these. Use those card inserts that are in all your magazines. I cut out the circles (if you have a paper punch from the scrap booking store - these are quite nifty). I also cut out fabric circle that are about 1/4" bigger all the way around.
This step is rather forgiving. As you can see my fabric circles are not perfect, while my paper punched card stock ones are. The next step is to take a running stitch all around the fabric circle about 1/8" in from the edge. Gather the thread and snug it tight.
This is the back side of the circles. They are a bit un-tidy, but no fear - they are perfect on the other side. Now I take these to my ironing board and spritz them with a bit of spray starch of Best Press. I press them. Once they are cool and dry, I snip the basting stitches and pull out the card stock circle.
Because of the pressing, the circles will keep their shape and you can easily applique a perfect circle down as your berry!
Here is my first appliqué block all ready to be trimmed down to exactly 18 1/2" square.
