This one was hard! It was also my first attempt at reverse appliqué (the tear drop shapes in between the white boxes).
I fussy cut the focus fabric, to highlight the birds in the center. Then, I attached the white boxes. I also fussy cut the focus fabric at the edges, so that some of the foliage would show. Lastly, I reverse appliquéd the tear drop shaped white shapes.
