Freezer Paper Applique

Took a great class (back at Suzy's Quilt Shop) in applique, this time the freezer paper technique. It's relatively simple, and though it can be time consuming, the results are exactly what you want. Basically, you cut the freezer paper in the shape desired, iron on to your fabric, cut the fabric around the paper with a scant 1/4" seam allowance, fold the seam allowance over the paper, baste it down, then using the applique stitch, apply to your project, when you're about an inch from finishing, you pull out the basting and the paper, fold back under and finish... It seems like a lot of steps, but the points I can get now on a leaf are worth it. Will post pictures as soon as I've made enough progress to warrant.
