I love applique, all methods. I love learning new ways to applique, the more techniques, the better equipped I am for any project. But I've always had this fear of reverse applique. Ohhh, that was for the really good appliquer's, not me.
So as I've worked along on my Beyond the Cherry Tree, I've appliqued on top of things instead of doing the reverse method. This came to a halt when I got to this block.
