If you have done much quilting at all, you have run across something called a Y-seam. Basically it is a point where three seams come together, forming a 3-pronged line. . . kinda like a “Y”
There are tricks to stitch this junction so that it is smooth and even and it isn’t really complicated. But I guess there’s no other way to say it . . . I HATE Y-seams!
In the past, I have found many methods and techniques that I struggled with and did not particularly enjoy doing. But, by sticking to it and practicing, I can usually conquer said method or technique so that it’s not so bad. Sometimes I’ve even learned to enjoy what I previously avoided.
Not with Y-seams.
And guess what? This little beauty has TWELVE of them!
What was I thinking??? Um, I guess I wasn’t. At least not about Y-seams. I was so focused on getting all those spikes to lay right and match up all the points in the lone star – I didn’t think about how it would all go together.
But, go together it did and I’m really tickled – er, pink! I can’t stop looking at it. It is so worth all the work.
All except the Y-seams.
