Upside-Down Applique

At the October Millington Quilt Club meeting, one of the members, Jan, showed us how to do upside-down applique.  In upside down applique, you stitch the applique from the back of the project.  After the applique fabric is stitched down, the extra fabric is cut away and the top is finished with a satin or blanket stitch.

I wanted to try the technique but didn't want to spend a lot of time, so I just made a simple snowman.

I framed the finished applique.  The picture was embellished with  hand embroidered snowflakes, iron-on crystals, buttons and a yoyo.
