I am so glad I did because now I want to finish this quilt even more than when I originally started it!!!
Basically you sew the three pieces, A, B, and C, together to form a triangle. Having had so much practice doing that with the twisting triangles this was really a piece of cake and a pleasure...ha...
|Triangle with Pieces A, B, C|
And of course...two triangles together makes a square...
And my anal inclination paid off because my points look perfect, if I do say so myself, and the seams line up perfectly... I am not afraid to include this close up to prove it!
|Perfect Point and Lined Up Seams!|
There I am...happily sewing along...all of my seams lining up...everything looking amazingly hunky dory for being sewn at 11pm after a long migraine day. (not a cryptic catch phrase, I just literally had a migraine all day) Look at how beautiful these center seams meet up in the middle of my block!

Yup, uh hunh, perfect... Um...well almost...
Here is my block. Notice anything amiss?
Well? Anything? Yeah...well...the green and yellow corners are supposed to alternate! You know, the yellow corner should be diagonal from the other yellow corner! Mental stomp around the room and wave fists around temper tantrum. What I did in reality was roll my eyes to the ceiling and curse myself...but I'll spare you that here.
I had a choice. Stop now or pull through. Hmmm...I couldn't just seam rip the center seam because I actually would have to seam rip 2/3rds apart because the squares on one half needed to be flipped. OR I could just make another 2 squares. Eh, I figured I already have to make more blocks why not just head in that same direction? So I did.
Here it is! My First Finished Block for Spinning Stars!
