Rob Appell - Reverse Applique



"Reverse Applique"

It is very basic construction, yet a very dramatic finish in just a few hours of
I started with two fabrics and some batting. First, the blue bubble batik and the
other is a Black Batik. The Batik is used to help prevent the fabric from unravelling,
and the fusible web will also aide in the longevity of this project. I recommend
batiks, but just about anything will work. Make sure you have something
fun that works color wise with your design and a solid to be the reverse
appliqué fabric.
You are also encouraged to bring any design or motif to class that will be used
as your inspiration of design. You may also want to stash some tracing paper
and a wheel in your bag to transfer the actual designs onto the black fabric.
My method is to free hand draw the designs on the black with the chalk, and I
am happy to help all of you play with both techniques in the class.
You will be able to set the stitching using a standard straight stitch or free motion
machine quilting. This class will be taught as if we are all beginners, but
should open up a world of complex looking quilts for our future.
