I suggest that you use the templates and take your time when seaming.   I did this block twice and it still isn't exactly right.   The center wants to bulge.  I think I can "quilt it out"   LOL

Beautiful Block Nana. Is this the one you were saying was so difficult?

Nice block Nana. I like the way the stripes move and the plaid is balancing it all. 

I too had some problems with this one but it was because I didn't sew the darker triangles to the lighter triangles using the long side of the triangle.  One week I just decided to finish all the A blocks.  So here's mine too.

Gorgeous block Nana. I really like the striped and checked fabrics.

This one was a PITA and would have been better had I hand pieced it:
