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.

The latest pattern from the Play with me Quilt Along

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 really am enjoying learning all the techniques. And as you said to me, I mustn’t stop trying something just because I didn’t like it the first time. Maybe like learning to ride a bycicle, when you fall off and scrape your knee, you get back up and on that bike again and keep trying. I can picture myself as that child, legs and arms flaying bawling my eyes out. ? when I try it again, I will send you a pic.

    You don’t alwayshave to follow the techniques of the designer, I recently did a pattern where I didn’t understand the directions in the pattern whatsoever, so I did it my way and it turned out just fine. šŸ™‚
