Default applique question

I'm new to applique and bought a pattern. If I have a question about where to cut pieces, is it OK to attach a copy of the pattern to question? Don't want to violate any rules. If so, it is an animal pattern that has dotted lines on it - was wondering if I'm supposed to cut at those sections to divide the pattern up.
Thanks for any help.

There's usually a solid line to indicate cutting and a dashed line for stitching, 1/4" in from the cutting line.

I went to the website for the pattern Sassafras-Lane.com and she has a tutorial on applique on the site, it will probably answer all your questions.

I saw that and understand the basics but was wondering if the dotted lines on the pattern have significance

Usually a dash line means that the pieces are to fit under the next piece. You do the piece the correct size indicated including the dash part(beak) but the dash part gets slipped under the eye pieces.

No do not cut in to sections. Those are placement lines. If you use an appliqué sheet or parchment over your drawing, lay down piece A first; then layer B over A using the dashed line as your placement, the top of the B piece should come up to the dashed line that says top of B piece, and continue to build your owl in that manner. Hope this helps.

Welcome to the QB from SE Michigan! Tartan and Thuimebug are right those are placement lines. Once you start and before you stitch lay out all your pieces and you will see how things are suppose to fit. Hope to see a lot of you around here again welcome to the QB.
