First Block Finally

This is my Patty Cake Block - I was putting off doing the cherries but am really pleased with how they turned out..  I am stilled undecided as to what method of needle turn I will use. I am using a different method for block 2

I have started block 2 and have got to the points of the umbrella and I am having a think about how to do these.

Can't rush these things.....LOL

Love your "cake" fabric on the far right. What technique did you use on this block? I've tried freezer paper on top, glue stick, and regular needle turn - best block was the needle turn, but I'm stil wary.

Hi Elisa, I used the method with freezer paper on the wrong side and then you paint the seam allowances with starch and iron them under, then you put a couple of tiny drops of glue to hold the piece in place while you stitch it down.
