Applique in Reverse (book)
Create unique dimensional looks with this classic technique! With Teri Tope’s Appliqué in Reverse, intricate hand-appliqué designs are made fast and easy. The secret is to use large pieces of background fabric underneath the appliqué designs for easier handling. Tiny seam allowances are a thing of the past! Beginners who love the look of appliqué can easily master this useful technique. The heart of the book is a menu of 13 block patterns and two border designs from Teri’s GARDEN NOUVEAU quilt. Teri shows you how to transform those patterns into nine additional projects including a tote bag, table runners, a bolster, and wallhangings with her appliqué in reverse technique. Her flair for bold color and dramatic fabrics will encourage the artist in you.
