    Sometimes they just do 4 blades of the same color and the center. That would save you some fabric for another square.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Marytoddliz- I have ran into the same problem of ending up with a larger DP then intended and thus have gifted several nice pillows to family and friends.

    MamaHen - Your DP is fantastic. Im curious as to how your point tips are a different fabric. Is that a result of the print of the fabric... like in the Paisley DP I shared???
    Have an awesome day!

    Scrappy DP's are one of my favorites. My DP made from the scraps of the other BOM's we have done this far sits nicely along all the other finished blocks. I really am enjoying the 2013 BOM.
    Have an awesome day!

    I extended the template one inch, then made a second template out of that-cut fabric and then sewed them onto the original blade, then folded & sewed across like you showed. I made sure to include the 1/4" seam allowance in each of the template pieces where they came together.

Size:  244.2 KB Jenniky- Here is a close up of the blades. I only stitched in the ditch across those points when I appliqued the DP to my background fabric.

    Marybethiz I really like your background too, it will make a great modern looking pillow or sham.

    MamaHen yours is gorgeous! I love how much character the added points give it. The colors are wonderful together.

    I hope to have mine done tomorrow, I think I'll end up with an oversize block too so may do the whole thing over.

    Sulabug- WOW... love you DP I concur with all the above posted comments. I have to say though I especially love your DP. The Iris fabric has a definite WOW factor in my book. It kinda of gives it a stained glass effect I think.
    Have an awesome day!
