"Red December" Blocks

I'm sick of stems and pointy points.  I'm so ready to toss this quilt in the "never ever going to get done" pile.  I have two more stems to add to the final center block and I'm tired of fighting points.  Even the leaves/flowers are killing me.  I figure this ever won't get to a quilt show as I can't keep the points in when I sew around them.  The fabric is just too bulky and the points are too steep.  Any amount of trimming just makes it worse.  So much for nice, neat finished edges.  Maybe I should leave any kind of appliqué work to those who truly love to do it.  Just keep me moving along.  Some encouragement would be great.
