Do your points match? Most quilt blocks have points or corners in the design. When piecing a block it is easy to ‘cut off’ a point. Sometimes the corners of the shapes will fall short of the seam lines and not match up. Most of the time this will not interfere with the overall construction of the quilt. It will cause a great deal of distress to the perfectionists out there that want to see matching points. The only way to remedy the situation is to rip out the stitches and try sewing again.

WARNING! Never explain matching points to family members as they will be quick to point out all your mistakes from that time forward.

Lots of points that need to be matching at the intersections.
