It’s made from some of my favorite Teagan White prints and I couldn’t love it more.  It’s a reverse appliqué pattern, meaning that the bright prints are behind the white fabrics.  Because I attached the layers about 1/4-inch back from the edge of the circle, it has a flange, which I just love.  Complete instructions are in the book!


My second quilt in The Appliqué Book is Spotlights.  It’s also a reverse appliqué quilt, but it’s got a few improv twists.

I have to say, having spent some time reading this book over the last week, that I’m really very impressed with it!  The instructions are clear and concise and it covers a wide variety of appliqué techniques and aesthetics.

If you are making the Spotlights quilt, you may find the following image in the instructions to be confusing:

spolights instruction

This photo makes it look like the quilt was assembled in blocks.  It was not.  While the text is clear that the off-white background piece was a single cut of fabric into which the holes were cut, this photo, by showing the edges of the larger piece of white fabric, suggests that the background was composed of several small pieces.  Anyway, should any confusion arise, the text is correct, not the photo.

  1. Hi, Thanks for the opportunity to win such a wonderful book. Applique is something I haven’t tried much of except a little here and there. Having said that, I have been meaning to try reverse applique as my next project.

  2. Trying reverse Applique just happens to be next on my list. And speaking of lists, this book is at the top of my wish list. Love your quilts!

  3. OMG, leave it to you Rossie to come up with two very inspired and gorgeous quilts. I love them both!

  4. I haven’t done much applique but do really like the two you have in the book. I think I’d try the first one. This book would be a great addition to my Modern guild library of which I am the librarian. Hope to win and add it to our collection.

  5. Beautiful! I really need to try more low volume. I’m always attracted to fabrics with jewel tones that are saturated with them. I’ve done some reverse applique using freezer paper and hand stitching, would love to try it on the machine.

  6. marvelous quilts! love applique … all kinds, but have not yet done reverse or trapunto. am going to make your moments quilt. thanx ro the opportunity to win a copy of this book.

  7. Oh, these are both so beautiful. I’d love to win this to see what the other quilts look like!

  8. I’d really like to learn more about applique and the different techniques to use them on quilts. I love how fabrics can be fussy-cut to show favorite parts/designs. Applique adds such a special touch.
