B-1 Batchelor Buttons

My applique skills are definitely a little rusty but B-1 is still one of my favorite little blocks.
It's reverse appliqued.

After I finished the block, I trimmed away as much of the excess fabric from the back as I felt comfortable doing.

(And yes, I know how to spell "bachelor" but this is how it's named in the book. Maybe spell checkers weren't around back then. Or maybe the misspelling was on purpose. Either way, it's kind of cute.)
