|Talking about strips sets and the reverse appliqué block.|
Here is Helen Marie's mix of metallic jewel tones from the Spring Bouquet strip set.

Linda's contrast fabric was the hunter green panel from the Radiant collection.

Susan embellished her block with decorative top stitching. Her strip set was the green Color Story (20 strip package) from Blank Quilting. The delicate picot edge stitching mimics the tiny twinkling stars in one of the fabrics.

|Preparing the block for reverse appliqué.|
After working though one block, the Squirrels agreed that reverse appliqué was "a cool technique!"
In the class, we also discussed design possibilities for strip-piecing the blocks, block layouts, and applications for using the reverse appliqué technique. Each student completed two or three appliqué blocks for their "Circle in a Square" table runners in class, so the projects are well on their way to the finish line.
