Block Week 12
The inner section (looks like a churn dash) was supposed to have points on the dark blue triangles. This is one of those "learning the hard way" times, and I thought later for some time about how to design the nine-patch with triangles on the corners so the added strips wouldn't shear off the points. Apart from paper-piecing the nine-patch strips, I'm still not sure. I'll have to look into it for the second round of this block. After all, I've made LOADS of sawtooth star, bears paw and other blocks with points in my day and haven't had a problem.
Anyhoo, at least this is ACCEPTABLE "learning the hard way." It's not like I'm trying to learn to pilot a helicopter (no 'happy accidents' in THAT).
