Em's block #5

Well here it is block #5. I really like this one. Though I did not get all my points to match up. I think I did the math wrong when I figured how big to make the square in the middle. That is were I had the most problems. But I didn't see the point in making all those triangles. Besides I am using scraps and it was easier to find a piece that would work for the square than for all the triangles. If you look close you will see I had to use two different blues. But I am determined to use scraps. I must make a dent in that bag.
Here are all my blocks so far. Do you realize we will have 52 blocks when we are all done. WOW!

I like your happy block! And don't be so hard on yourself. The points "read" as points, even if you don't think they are perfect. No one else will be that picky. Yesterday I gave away a quilt that a group of us made for someone. One of the blocks was quite a bit oversized and all the points were blunted. The people who saw the quilt oohed and aahed over it and pointed out, Oh look at the pretty butterfly! It was in the very blunted-points block. no one pointed out the bad points, just the prettiness of it. Amen!

Love your scrappy block! Don't worry about the points. I can't see any that are off. We are always our own worst critics! When I made the block, I looked at it as if it was a nine patch. Therefore each 'section' had to equal 4 1/2in. (unfinished). I think the centre square would have to be 4 1/2in and the corner squares (which would become triangles) 2 1/2in. Does this make sense? I am going to my machine right now and give it a try.

I love your happy colours and your points are just fine. You are doing a great job.

I echo what the others are saying -- you have a real eye for color!

What a charming block! I, too, just love your scrappy blocks. I'm glad someone did that center as a whole square. That's what I should have done.
