    Need help with measurements for this block

    I'm looking for someone wiser than me who can help me figure this block out to make it 10 inches finished. Thanks in advance!

    Hopefully this is readable. EQ gave me this for a 10" block.

    Jane, this looks like mine. I still haven't figured out how to not lose my points. Looks good except the top red point doesn't have enough pink for your seam allowance. Hopefully it's just the camera angle.

    Your block is lovely! You've inspired me to finally get off my butt and make one. I've been thinking about it for ages.

    I re-checked the block and you're right. It's a bit close. It was rather late last night when I made this block. Still like it though.

    The trick I use to not lose my points are to sew from the back. That way, I can sew exactly through the seam intersection without destroying the point.

    Love your fabric choices!! Great job deciphering the instructions. I looked at them and was lost.

    just re-sew the center seam, matching points there. that should give you back the seam allowance you need for the outside of the block. lovely block!!
