I think you all did a great job on this block!
klgreene, you're not going backwards, you're learning every time you make something new, even when it is not the way you wanted it. Next time you know how to do it right I think there's nothing wrong with your block, we all have missing points somewhere in a quilt. I know I do!
I read somewhere on a board that the points were so far off, they were in another quilt Yours are not that far off!
