Once before I reverse appliqued a previously quilted piece and had good results. In fact, that quilt, Going In Circles, will be included in the upcoming exhibit Fiber Revolution: A Survey of Styles, at the New England Quilt Museum. Here's a before shot

Sounds like a great idea! Love the piece here with reverse applique.

Someone said in relation to jewellery, I think, but it applies here, and perhaps also in the Feathers and Ferns piece ..."Less is More"
I really love this before shot, with intriguing shapes and textures. Perhaps Pat you need someone to tell you '"Stop ! Now!" everynow and then.

So... am I going to get shot if I say I like the 'before' better? Maybe it is just the photo, but I feel like you lose the wonderful color changes in the thread work by putting them up against such saturated fabrics...

I love your Pine piece - GORGEOUS! Maybe some *subtle* metallics, but otherwise don't mess with perfection!!!

Just my $.02. Thanks for sharing!
