Backgammon Reverse Applique Block

Backgammon Reverse Applique Block

The latest pattern from the Play with me Quilt Along.

Alida from Twelogdesign is the designer and quilt along leader for these patterns.

This is my attempt.

Backgammon

Now, I will be completely honest with you. This was the first time I tried reverse applique …. and I didn’t like it. But after having a chat with Alida, I will try this technique again on a different pattern, I might change my mind.

I chose two bright colors for the triangles behind a plain blue foreground. As an afterthought, i probably should have chosen a more vibrant color.

Each block in this quilt along, teaches you a new technique and a different way to quilt a motive on the pattern.

The quilting bit I haven’t tried yet. I am still deciding to wait to finish all the patterns, or quilt as you go.

These were the previous two patterns I have made so far.

I am having so much fun with this bom, and can’t wait for the next block to arrive. Which will be on the 1 of February 2016.

I will be making a quilt for myself.

I hope you will click through to Sewhooked and see what Jennifer’s got going on her site. She has some really awesome patterns.
