Block #1 Assembled

Phew it's all glue basted now.  I just have to machine stitch it.  I'll trim it to a 16 1/2" square once that's done.  Here it is:
I'm not happy with the upper right bud and it's position.  Do you advanced appliquers know if you can move pieces once they are glue basted with Roxanne's Glue baste?  Please advise.  The adjusted pattern for the center can be found here.

  1. Hi, you can certainly move glue basted pieces- I often need to move things a little! Just moisten sparingly and the glue will simply release. I usually moisten from behind, leave for a little bit and hey presto!
    Good luck.

  2. I remove pieces all the time. I don’t moisten too afraid the edges will become unturned. I just careful pull them up holding the edge firmly .
    Lovely block.

    1. Thank you, Nancy - that is what I'm afraid of too, but I'm going to try it - sparingly as Kerry says. If I ruin the piece, I have more fabric and will try again.
