    I just tried a new technique (new to me, anyway) of reverse applique. I have completed 2 of 4 blocks, and in looking at the blocks am wondering how would I quilt it? Do you quilt inside or outside the applique? Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm at a total loss.

    Love your blocks. Don't know anything about quilting...yet! Be sure and show us what you decide.

    Thanks for your input. I really thought it would be better quilted outside, but because everything is reversed I was wondering if quilting should be reversed too.

    It is very pretty! In the dark blue sounds the best to me but I never have tried it.
