    OK - I have always prided myself on my ability to finesse a star and its points to look right. This is my most recent $5 BOM from a LQS - and this one took my patience to the ultimate limits!! I have never attempted a 3-fer so to speak and it became readily apparent that there were lots of places that someone who was OCD with points could get into trouble. With all that said - I was reasonable pleased with the outcome.

    Amazing! Personally, I am not up to that detailed project. But you sure have inspired me to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks - I can give lot of credit to my seam ripper - with whom I became intimate with :oops: while making this block!!

    That being said, Chicca, - all it takes is carefully measuring of each section and making sure that you have the proper seam allowance on every edge of the Flying Geese sections.

    To allow for extra area all around, I add 1/4" to the long side of rectangles and corner squares. Then you can square up your block after piecing.
    Also I do the sewing on a diagonal line for Star Points, and cut off excess.

    I do this as well when I purchase yardage for a quilt. But in these $5 BOM, you pay $5 to start and if you bring you block back completed - you get the next one for free. SO that being said, you get almost exactly what you need to make the block in a little bag. My goal is to try and do this one without spending any more $$ than I have to!!
