    This seems to be worrying more people, because of the reverse applique. I tacked/basted my pink behind the black, either side of the line, leaving a little room to tuck the black under.

    Then you have to cut the black down the middle between the two lines. If your block is enlarged, you have enough to tuck under. If you are working with a 7in block, you might consider making the two lines just a little further apart if you are worried that you won't have enough to turn under. Either way, don't cut down the middle all the way round, just an inch or two at a time, and I had two needles on the go, so I could stitch along both sides before I cut the next section.

    The back, with the pink cut away - this way, you can use what is left over in another block.

    The 'underneath' leaves added - no need to tuck under where another leaf is going on top. Note I have redrawn the liines on top of these leaves, so I will be able to follow them when sewing on the next lot. Sometimes an ordinary (grey) lead is easier to see.

    Gorgeous blocks, Lesley. Your tutorial was very, very helpful when I was doing my block 10.

    Your fabrics are gorgeous, Kathy. I am just in awe that you are able to do the stitching of the embroidery work from the back and do such a great job.

    Thanks, Judy, but I'm having to re-learn the technique as I haven't used it in a couple of years.

    I just noticed that she did the embroidery on the inside of that reverse app. 'loop'. I only noticed the other day that the book showed it in the pattern, because I don't think Aie did it in the coloured pic (must check on that). I hadn't done it, and I don't think I will now. My loop is light pink, and I don't think my yellow DMC would enhance it somehow.

    I think this will be the first time I have left any embroidery off, but there have been a couple of blocks that I have added a bit extra in places. (mostly to outline a fabric that is a little dark on the black background and doesn't show it all that well.

    I agree Lesley, I was thinking that I might do some extra embroidery when I don't feel like my applique piece's edge looks like I want it to. Then who would know????

    Kathy - as our resident fusible machine-stitch applique guinea pig, how did you do the "reverse" applique part of this block? I was thinking that with the fusible, I would fuse it on and then satin stitch just like any other part of the block. Is that how you did it, or is there some funky reverse fusible method of applique that I haven't seen? Thanks!

    I need to take a pic of mine, but I didn't do reverse applique on mine. I did needleturn, but you could do it the same way...I just laid the color appliqued the yellow bit to the background, cut away the background...marked the yellow and then appliqued the background piece to that...regular applique and it turned out great. I haven't done my embroidery on mine yet is why I haven't taken a pic yet...

    I didn't do reverse applique. I did a machine version of Patti's quasi-needleturn method. We both had the same idea!

    I appliqued a large patch of the yellow where it would be along the outer edges of the tiny ribbon. Then I trimmed out the back black fabric underneath the yellow patch, leaving about 1/4" margin all around. Then I appliqued another black patch that touched the inner edge of the yellow ribbon. Trimmed out the yellow from behind that! Then proceeded to applique everythign else. I think I have a pic of the back somewhere. I'll see if I can find it.

    This shows the block from the back side.

    I decided against appliqueing a thin piece as I'm doing the original size 7" block & I felt it might be too thin to stitch on both sides of it, so I did it this way.

    gorgeous! I did reverse applique' once and gave the piece away. I did mine like a cut out like snowflake. It was fun.

    Thanks Kathy - that is really helpful to see. My blocks are 12", so it might be OK to simply "regular" applique the entire thin piece. I'll have to see when I get to it - but now I have an option!
