Star BOM #4

This block was kinda tricky with all those bias edges.  Piecing triangle-shaped units is a bit out of my comfort zone.  The quarter-block units were a bit warped looking, but after a good stretch and squaring up they turned out OK. 

And then this happened.  There is a big old pucker in the center, it didn't lay flat, and the turquoise corner wasn't even close to matching.  Bah!

So, after ripping that out and deciding to focus on making the turquoise corners match instead of the center (Having both matching up was NOT going to happen) -it's good enough for me.  And: Bonus- the center is a little less bulky.   :)  In conclusion, although this block was the trickiest, it is my favorite so far.  And now I am all caught up!  Oh, wait, it's practically June already.  Well, that didn't last long!
