Back to Basics
BB19 Reverse Appliqué
Reverse appliqué is one of those things that you just should have in your toolbox. It offers a lot of different options under that larger umbrella…like revealing more than one layer of fabric, or revealing a pieced layer or even using regular appliqué on top of your reverse appliqué to get an even more interesting look. Traditionally done by hand, Charlotte will be showing you how you can also do this using your machine, making the project much faster…but just as impressive!
