Here are pictures of my applique wallhanging. I used both reverse and traditional applique. I'm not sure you can tell the difference on the pictures, but the red part on the buds are reverse appliqued and also the light colored background.

That is so beautiful Minda! Your handwork is exquisite!

Have you ever seen molas from Panama? They do wonderful reverse applique. One day, I'll get my collection out and photograph them. I doubt you need new ideas, but you have to make more of those! So pretty! I love your fabrics and design too. :D :D

Thanks for the compliments. The pattern I used is from Karen Kay Buckley, but the color picks were all mine.

Chele, I haven't seen molas from Panama. Please, please post pictures of your collection. I'm really curious. Thanks.

Wonderful!! You do beautiful work and I love your colors. Seeing this has made me rethink giving applique another try.

Minda, I'd like to say I understand it, but just don't. Is what you've done a several part appliqué process? Gadz, I don't mean to be dense...

Very pretty anyway.

WOWZER!!!! I bow and scrape at the foot of your monument! Your stitching is fabulous!!! love the colors and fabric choices, too. And SO clever to add that background. (or should i say foreground?) takes the pattern to new heights!

Steve, if you think about it, most applique is a several-part process. pieces are added next to or onto other pieces in their proper order. like putting together a 3-dimensional puzzle. :P
