I need a little help with a block I worked on yesterday for the Modern Blocks Bee I am participating in. This is called Box Kite by Angela Pingel and you can see the original block here on her website. First go check out what the block should look like and then compare it with mine.

My questions for you:
1. In the original block all four points of each individual "box kite" should come to a point, not cut off like mine are. What could I have done wrong to have these points cut off when I cut all of the fabric out correctly?
2. The "box kites" should continue all the way to the end of the 12.5 x 12.5 inch block - I added a black border to increase my block size to that dimension. Again, what did I do wrong?
I am looking for perfection but I want to understand what I did wrong so I can either make another block for my partner and/or learn for the next time. Any input you have would be appreciated.
I'm linking up with Sew Modern Monday and Manic Monday today. Please visit them both!
Thanks everyone! Have a safe and productive Monday,
