A Christmas Story

I have finally completed the first block of "A Christmas Story Quilt".

It looks good but I'm not completely happy with it.  It took me two attempts to put the block together.  The pieces didn't quite fit so I presume I didn't sew the seams very accurately.  I also feel that the block doesn't sit flat.  I put interfacing on all the pieces that I appliqued and the other pieces don't have it on.  I feel that it is not sitting right at all.  I know I need to trim the edges a bit to make it straight.  

Has anyone else had the same problem.  I don't know whether to apply interfacing to all my pieces to stabilize the fabric.  Wondering if I need to unpick it all again and try for a third time.
