This design takes 'reverse applique' up one notch. No, not in difficulty, just in terms of adding an additional layer - as you layer in 'regular' applique, so to in this design. You will start with the normal 2 fabrics and do the whole turtle with a 'plain' shell. Then, you will add another fabric underneath and do the pattern in the shells. As for the word 'Wisdom' - it comes from the words given the Tortoise in Susie Green's book - "Animal Wisdom": ANCIENT WISDOM - REMAINING TRUE TO ONESELF Not a bad subtle reminder to have on our wall. ^_^ "Never forget that just as Tortoise's hatchlings emerge from their shells perfect, you too were born flawless."
