A Small Thing but Frustrating!

I just want to work on my blocks and get them done and have a beautiful quilt. I really don't want any aggravation but it seems to want me! I'm feeling some frustration on the current one - can you tell? I took a photo of my progress and it is quite pitiful. 😖

The block is supposed to be 5.5" unfinished but at this point it is heading to be much larger than that. It is all bubbling up in the center where I have added the outer pieces and that just won't do. I thought I traced the templates accurately but my pencil lines must have been too thick and my templates may have ended up too large....grrrr.

I 've set it aside for now but eventually I will unpick it, check the sizing, mark sewing lines on each piece and then hand piece the whole thing instead of machine stitching it. I need to keep moving forward!
