thx. Its not perfect, and I think I made a mistake in my measurements, as I have lost most of my points. I think what I have done is measured my strips for the diamonds at 3 1/4 instead of the 3 1/2. I only briefly glanced at the materials list, I was more focused on watching the video and making sure my angles were correct, and for some reason i had 3 1/4 inch going around in my head when cutting! Plus my block is not to size but its not a real issue as I could add a border around. I'm not sure whether to do another one or maybe add something to cover up where the points are supposed to be.

Ooo, I like your contrasts and print tops. These really "tumble" off the block! Nice work :D
