Reverse Applique: What's Black and White and Red all over?
The conventional answer to that one is The Newspaper, but I'm not sure anybody really reads that anymore these days. A bit of a shame really, but too easy to get news on your tablet I think.
Although my initial efforts at reverse applique on jersey fabric (ala Alabama Chanin) are far from perfect, they are moving along, and IMHO looking rather cool.
This one is white on top, black as the 2nd layer with some pinkish red paint.
I made a front and a back and hope to turn it into a bag eventually once I get more than 2 seconds to rub together.
To those of you who have been hanging out recently at Quilt Market, it all sounds very exciting this year. I'm looking forward to seeing all the season's new fabrics for us quilters to play with.
