You have to consider elements like underlay which sews first and gives the overstitch life from the underlying fabric, plus stabilizes the fabric by bonding it to the backing you use when sewing.
Sequence is very important to ensure the machine doesn't jump from one end of the hoop to another, and keeps sewing. An old customer used to say each jump of thread break on the machine was a $1 he threw into the bin so you want to try and make each object of the same color to sew together and 'run' or travel under other objects to avoid trims.
You can see that in video where the first half of the leaves are done, then it 'runs' or travels to the other side with a run stitch that eventually is sewn over by the leaf.
