Reverse Appliqué with Circle in a Square

Despite the frosty weather, my 3-day visit with the quilters in Huntsville at Huntsville Sew and Vac was absolutely delightful. I'm still astounded that so many of the students completed the table runner project from the "Circle in a Square" reverse appliqué class. Several of them even used this project in the afternoon class to work on free-motion background filler designs in my new "Fillers, Spillers and Thrillers" class. They are super productive quilters!

Ginger (left) and Diane completed multiple blocks for their table runners.
The "Circle in a Square" pattern [by my friend Janice Pope of Anything But Boring] is perfect for using the pre-cut strip packages like Fabrications from Blank Quilting Corp. Here are the students making blocks from their strip sets.
Cutting blocks from the strip sets. Teamwork!
At the ironing stations, the reverse appliqué blocks are pressed prior to machine stitching.

Once these quilters mastered the reverse appliqué technique with the first block, they were off and running!

Several experimented with multiple appliqué layers, asymmetrical layouts, different shapes and creative patchwork.
