    I have a back made for a baby quilt and I want the front to be appliqued bugs and I want the decorative applique stitch to be on the back squares. Has anyone done anything like this?

    I did something like that on a baby quilt, except I put a pieces of fabric on the back side before I did the satin stitching, then trimmed it close to the stitching. That way I ended up with applique shapes on the back too.
