Reverse Applique

The Chertsey class yesterday was learning to do reverse applique, from this great book lent to me by the lovely StitchinScience

Not only did she lend me the book, but also her carefully made samples pieces for all the stages - so I didn't have to do ANY homework - thanks A!

Debra chose an oval shape and started to quilt it too

While Kay went for a circle
 I was a bit late getting the camera out so the others had packed away before I got photos, so here is mine, front and back (with the flash not working it would appear)

I found some pirate ship fabric in the box, so did some fussy cutting and used a ship for my insert

***  TOP SECRET ***

The Assistant Curator at the museum is going on maternity leave soon, so with a barrage of 'innocent' questions, we have established she is expecting a girl, and the nursery colour scheme is yellow - so next month's plan is to make a sample quilt for the baby!


  1. Hi Benta! Looks and sounds great! I wish I could have joined, too, because long time now I want to try curves!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Cunning plan with the baby quilt...

  3. Another thing I want to try out! Love the pirate ship!

  4. Those circles and ovals look great. Would you recommend reverse appliqué rather than needle turn?

  5. What a great looking book - well worth the effort though. xx

  6. Hi Benta, these look like super results. Glad the demonstration went well.

  7. Looks like a fun class! And a great way to do curves, too. I've never done reverse applique (and truthfully don't understand exactly what it is exactly-- although I've done applique with fusing and stitching along the edges). I like your fussy cut pirate!

  8. That looks like fun! Any chance of a repeat in April!!
