Hand Stitch Reverse Applique
Learn how fun and easy it is to hand stitch reverse applique while you create the beautiful Honey Rose 18” x 18” quilt piece. You’ll learn our unique technique of under-coloring to add spots of color to your reverse applique, too. And it’s all done with Eye of the Beholder’s simple 4-step method: Trace, Baste, Snip & Stitch. Then we’ll come in with a touch of applique to add further dimension, still with our same 4 easy step method. Finish your piece as a table topper, a wall-hanging, or a pillow. Come join the fun! I will lead you step by step through the process. Learn how easy it is to get sharp points, crisp corners and graceful curves. You will love the results you get and you don’t get hung up on the pins. Be empowered to do reverse needle-turn appliqué by hand, do it like a pro and enjoy it!
