Beginner - Half Day

 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. When you do it by machine, it takes no time at all. 

Learn the quick and easy steps in Eye of the Beholder’s Trace, Snip, Iron and Stitch process to machine reverse appliqué, and get pointers on how to satin stitch like a pro. See the dimensional magic of the Lollipop Flower block (7” x 7”) from Lollipop Garden Quilt (40” x 40”) revealed as you stitch.  Make it in black & brights as we did, or re- imagine it in your colors.  Learn with others and experience the fun and beauty of reverse appliqué by machine.
