What are you most proud of? attempting to make this block!

Oh, Angie. You are too hard on yourself. Your block looks great, and believe me, nobody is going to notice your points are 1/100 of a millimeter off. And yes, you can quilt out those little, tiny, barely there ripples. Ask me how I know! Someone once told me, "Just wash the quilt and all the crap stitches will disappear." Hmmm, sound familiar???? LOL LOL Really nice block, Angie.

bahahahah! Hey, that DOES sound familiar! Wise, very wise...So I asked the question in the class though...my block is too big but if I trim it to the right size I'll cut off the points (I ain't makin' that block again!) so what do I do? too big with points or too small without points??

two choices, in my humble opinion.... leave as is, nice points, and place it somewhere where you can shave off a bit from surrounding block(s), or for a wild and crazy modern look, cut off two adjacent sides from the star block so it looks asymmetrical or off center and like the points are cut off on purpose.

... I would probably lop off two sides so it looks off center... remember my modern dresden block from the 2012 BOM? Suh'm like that.
