Block number/name: I-6 “Viewer’s Choice”
Date completed: February 2, 2010
Number of pieces: 9
Notes on block: I used freezer paper on the bottom when appliquéing these melons. I think that method really helped control the long, skinny pieces better than I would have been able to do with needleturn. As a result, they have a nice, uniform look to them. And freezer paper on bottom really helps make placement easier too. For the star shape, I did needleturn with freezer paper on top. Overall, a very happy little block!
