I have just spent a good hour inside the Fat Quarter Shop and I found some awesome fabric to try reverse quilting with!! I forget now where I saw this method but I have been wanting to try it and just have not found the right fabric for the job! ... until now!!
For this method you load a solid color backing (preferably black), the batting and your top piece of fabric as you normally would load your quilt top and then thread paint the top by the design in the fabric. You really want to try and find something with large flowers and other designs that will play well with you while you are doing the quilting. When you are finished you actually will use the backing as the front of your quilt.. It will look like you hand painted a scene on a solid piece of fabric!
I am INNN LOVEEE with this Jane Sassaman fabric!!! What do you think about this? Do you think it will work well for the reverse quilting?
Garden Divas Collection by the way... just in case you might be thinking about going over to the Fat Quarter Shop and getting you some! The first one below would work up beautiful too but I want to try just one before I buy another fabric for this method.
These fabrics are the cat's meow!!!
