Back at it... WILL finish in 2016

I still LOVE this quilt. I just can't get it off my mind. I am determined to get it finished in 2016. I did finish one long side last week and have begun to work on the middle section. Honestly, I dreaded this center section the most - I do NOT like doing satin stitches and this section has tons of those satin-stitched berries! I was able to get quite a bit done last night though so maybe I can work through this center section quickly.

I do need advise on marking the embroidery. I am using a water soluble pen and I don't like it. I am having problems making all the blue disappear on my finished piece - which I knew I would since I let it sit there for a year traced. That's a problem I created - but I will get it out. I know Leanne uses a fine point marker - I'm honestly scared I will not trace it well and you will be able to see it through the stitching. What does everyone use to trace?
One long section DONE
My one lone corner section - note the date!
The center section is started - darn those blue berries!
