    Pouchy Stars

    I decided to try my hand at EPP stars. The problem came when I added the next row of diamonds around the star---now the middle of the star pooches out and won't lie flat! What did I do wrong, you EPPers? Help me! I really want to learn to do this correctly.

    are your papers still in place? can you post a couple pictures, front & back so we can see what you have done? seeing the problem may help us figure out what is going on- i do alot of epp...(check out my topic of my hex project) and have not had any of my blocks (pooch)
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Yes - please post a photo so that we can see what is happening. I'm having trouble picturing how your centers can pooch if they're paper pieced.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
