Reverse Applique

It has been some time since I last attempted this technique. Today we were given a demonstration of it at the Innovative Stitches meeting and encouraged to do a piece ourselves. This is what I have done so far. I used some knit fabric on top of a hand dyed piece of cotton.

I am not sure whether I should trim right back to the stitches (which is what you are supposed to do) or leave a border of the top layer to surround them. I rather like the latter effect.
