I finished the final block for the 2009 Pioneer Sampler Block of the Month quilt.  I really like this block pattern, but I sure didn't do such a good job with it.  I cannot redo it, so this is the way it will stay. 

Why am I not completely thrilled with it?  Cuz my points aren't where they should have been to start with, so they didn't end up where they should have.  See below...I have the worst offenders circled.  (click on the photo for a larger image)

And, my center is fussy-cut.  Obviously, I didn't do a very good job.  The flowers should be on point.  {sigh}

That's all the sewing for today.  Time to read or watch tv. 

By the way...snow snowed a bunch!!!  And, it got  warmer, so the roads are very slippery underneath all the snow.  I saw several cars in front of my house trying to slow down for the corner...and ending up moving forward in a sideways position. 

YIKES!  I am not going anywhere!

Oh, Jacque, I think your block is beautiful. So what if it isn't perfect. I LOVE the colors you used, my colors!! :-)
It is snowing here to, really putting it down! I just posted some pictures of the snowy boys!
Very pretty block.

Looks good to me, Jacque!!! I pieced two things years ago and I could have shown you some really bad piecing!! Don't be so hard on yourself!!!

I never noticed anything, even after you said it, until you circled the errors!! You are very picky, I thought it was a very good job! Enjoy your snow day. We don't generally get those up here in Alaska, no kidding, cuz when it snows here, so what? We keep going! LOLOL

I think it is BEAUTIFUL, and I have a "personal interest" in there!
