I bought this block of the month a long time ago to practice my stitching on but didn't like how it looked. Didn't like one of the inner petal fabrics (won't use it either). Today I finished stitching up to that point and it was bothering me that my "points" weren't as sharp as they should be (some way off). Buttons to the Rescue. I just got back from Walmart and found a button that I can use in the middle (grins).
