  1. How does the point not get cut off when you sew a bunch of these together? Or is there a 1/4" above the point that's not indicated in the drawing?

    1. Hi Janelle,
      Thanks for asking. The illustrations do show the completed block. So the unfinished block will be 1/2" larger and there will be a 1/4" above the point.
