Bxing and her mother created a wide variety of reverse applique panels that they were selling for $10.00 each. What a deal for the hundred's of tiny stitches in each one. Reverse applique is a technique where the background fabric is placed on top with the design pieces below. The upper fabric is cut through in a design that reveals the colored fabric underneath. This is the reverse of traditional applique. I've never tried reverse applique, but my mother made a beautiful 'stained glass' reverse applique wall hanging, and once it was completed said "never again". It was a difficult process. Bxing's designs each have a special meaning. The curves represent embracing those you love, encircling and protecting children and family.
