Reverse Applique

I just started this piece, working on machine free-motion stitching and trying out reverse applique. The top fabric is cut away between the stitching to reveal a contrasting fabric just under the top layer. It's kind of tedious to cut away the fabric, but very fun to see how it looks when you are done - a nice surprise. This little circle I have cut away so far is about an inch across (to give you an idea of the overall size) - I plan to cut away more over the next few days - maybe add some embroidery and hand stitches...
