We had a Make It And Take It yesterday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and the reverse appliqué technique was taught. Sharon has her piece all ready to sew. The students said (promised) they would bring back their finished project the last Tuesday in April so we could view the finished items and ask questions. REMEMBER your commitment gals, you promised. Besides, blog readers want to see them too!

After they chose their fabrics and made design decisions, the women got down to work.

You have to really think before you cut when doing reverse applique. Otherwise, you may be doing regular applique rather than reverse applique. Fortunately, these students didn't have that problem. Great students who followed directions!

The class was only two hours long so they got right down to work.

I'm looking forward to seeing their finished projects. Some women chose from various large flower designs. One student drew her own design. I can't wait to see her butterfly. Next post I'll show you a picture of the upcoming Make It and Take IT project scheduled for next week. This project is sure to make you think of those summer days ahead.
Caron Mosey has a darling BOM on her site. Check it out.

Until next time,

I just found your blog this morning and would love to have the redwork patterns from the first 3 months of the year. How can I get them?
