    Looks like your strip (her dk blue, your light), was too wide. I'm not sure what the width should be, maybe someone else knows.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Can't help with this one but if all else fails, Quilter's Cache has one with templates or paper piecing.

    I am doing this block today. I am using the Quilter's Cache PP pattern. Your second block looks like the finished block they have. I went to your link and the block looks good to me. Maybe I don't understand the problem. Looks like you did a very good job on this star. BrendaK

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    What dimensions are your blue pieces - they should be 1.5" high, and 1 3/4 inches on the short side, 4 3/4 inches on the long side.

    It looks to me like the seam has not been well pressed; that might be causing some 'shortness' of the blue.

    Looks like you didn't line it up correctly, you should have dog ears on both ends. Why not try the paper pieced one?
