Perfect Points?

I made a quilt that contained blocks that were a variation of the Idaho Star. I had to use three different seem allowances to get the points to line up. It took me many tries to get the block close to perfect, but I used these different allowances throughout the quilt, and it turned out great. I checked all the individual pieces and they were cut correctly. I don't know why it didn't work as it should have.

I always cut the points. Then I only sew to the 1/4 inch end and back stitch a couple stitches. I usually maker the 1/4 mark or if my foot has the 1/4 mark, I stop.
