Did you know?

Unlike traditional appliqué, where a fabric shape is sewn on top of a base fabric, reverse appliqué involves cutting away a layer of fabric to reveal a shape appliquéd underneath. Reverse appliqué can create interesting visual effects on your quilt, and the technique can be tweaked to create clean, precise shapes or scrappy, artistic layering.
