HAVE YOU TRIED REVERSE APPLIQUE?

Have you tried your hand at reverse appliqué? This project was made of a scrap pieced “secret” layer as featured in Jan Mullen’s book Reverse Appliqué with No Brakez.

No fancy rulers or other tools were needed to make this simple wall hanging. The project consisted of one fat quarter. The yellow fabric was “made” by stitching together many small bits of yellow scraps found in the scrap bag. The border is also scraps of red fabrics with a few black and white bits tossed in for good measure. About ¼ yard of striped fabric was purchased for the binding. Watch for an upcoming class in reverse appliqué at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
Glenys shows us the previous Penny Rug BOM. These wool fabrics make up so nice. Check out this year's Sampler. It promises to be as pretty.
Check this Out: Nellie says spring is in the air and the blue birds are scoping out their nesting places. To help you get in the mood for spring you might want to check out Nellie’s Needles and take a look at her bird sculptures. Scroll down and get the pattern in the side bar.
Until Next Time: Happy Quilting!
