Join the fun! Be empowered!
Reverse appliqué mixed with appliqué gives a unique, dimensional look to your quilt! Like in a real garden, the receding greenery is created in the background fabric peeking out of the black top fabric. And the blossom-dots pop because they are appliquéd.
Learn the quick and easy steps in Eye of the Beholder’s trace, baste, snip and stitch process to hand reverse appliqué, and get pointers on how to successfully needle-turn appliqué, giving you crisp points and graceful curves. See the dimensional magic of the Lollipop Flower block (7” x 7”) from Lollipop Garden Quilt (40” x 40”) revealed as you stitch. We designed the pattern in Black & Bright batik fabrics by Island Batiks, but perhaps you’ll re- imagine it in your own colors. Learn with others and experience the fun and beauty of reverse appliqué by hand.
