This is a scan of the January block front. Cut your patches accurately and sew with a scant 1/4" seam (about one thread less than 1/4" to allow for the width of the seam) and your block will come out perfectly. Notice how the seams meet. These seams go together well when the seams being joined are pressed in opposite directions. Also notice that the points are sharp and not cut off. The triangle points end 1/4" from the outside edge so they will not be cut off when the blocks are sewn together.
