Hazel's diary quilt-along, block 5

This block is a variation of the traditional Memory Star block.

It turned out larger as I tried to do a really scant 1/4" SA. But guess it was too scant, lol! as it's measuring more like 6 5/8's instead of 6.5" square. I did trim it down a bit already. Any more, I'm going to really loose those points once I piece the blocks. So think I'll just leave it for now.

Think I am getting better though. Before I started quilting, I really thought my seam allowance was accurate and I sewed a straight line; huh! I've certainly learned otherwise. Oh well, everything takes practise, right?!
Onto block 6!

Happy sewing everyone and thanks for dropping by!
