    Reverse Applique

    I promised a tutorial on how I do a reverse applique. I hope it helps someone. It is in pdf format.

    This is something I've never tried, thanks for the tuit....so if i understand this correctly always make your applique shape 1/4 larger than you want the finished shape?

    i would say yes, pretty close to that. i didn't actually sit down and do the math, just pretty much was winging it.

    WOW! Thank you so much. This looks like I can handle it and it will come in handy on the quilt I am making for a marine. I was wondering how I was going to do the medal but this just might do the trick.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Thanks. I was wondering what Reverse Applique was so now I have something to follow and test it out.
    Happy Quilting!

    Great tutorial. I do my reverse applique by hand, but this is great if I want something fast (and easy, too!) Thanks for sharing with us.

    I may have just found the starquilt I wanted to make for a young girl I started a friend ship with a few years ago when she was in Iraq! We have become penpals and she has even been to my house once, I am sort of a "Mom" figure to her

    THANKS!

    Thank you for the great tutorial! I am trying to reverse applique a block right now so GREAT timing...Did you trim the very tips of the star points and then pivot the needle when sewing it? Thanks again for the Tutorial!

    No trimming necessary in the tips, that is where my seam ripper (or a toothpick), open-toe foot, an iron and starch come in handy. Provides a perfect finish, flawless tucking and beautiful professional-looking seams.

    Thanks you made this look easy. In your opinion what would be a good first time reserve appliqué project? I'd really like to try this. Thanks for your post.
