Reverse Applique wall hanging

I've shown you a couple of sneak peaks of this project so far, and of course the entire solids fat quarter bundle I bought as I needed a couple of solid scraps, so I thought I should perhaps show you a bit more.


I'm making a wall hanging using reverse applique and fusible binding so it looks like a stained glass window.  I'm following a pattern for this one as I fell in love with it and hand to have it.  Above shows the coloured squares being sewn on and trimmed.


This is how it looks from the front.  I sewed down each marked line, I then had to cut out the white fabric from in front of the coloured pieces.


So this is where I am so far.  I actually started sewing on the fusible binding after taking this photo, I'll update you on that soon, but it's going so fast I think it might be almost finished... I hope so as this is my September goal for ALYOF.

That's looking beautiful already. I love the idea of reverse applique creating a stained glass effect, really looking forward to seeing it finished.

Looks like lining up the scraps on the back could have been tricky! Love the part of the front that you've shown us, though! Looking forward to seeing the finished project!

It looks good - bright and striking!

Oh Wendy I just love the look of that - it's fabulous! Have you accicentally snipped any of the coloured fabrics yet? I'd be so worried about that the whole time I was cutting!

Trimming away the white bits so neatly sounds tricky, but it's looking great. I think you have more cutting dexterity than me!

Rachel said...

Very pretty!

Wow! Appliqué generally gives me the shakes... this technique looks even more challenging that the usual! It's coming along beautifully!
