I Still Hate Y-Seams!



I got 3 more of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks done this weekend. I have 2 more to do and I will have the first row done. I will then put it away and wait for Joy to catch up. Psssst....Joy.....Please take your time.

The first one I was able to avoid the Y-seams that the book had you doing.
This next one has the dreaded Y-Seams. It is slightly wonky on the bottom but it is done.
The next one had curved seams and applique. I decided to avoid the curved seams by using Misty Fuse and doing a blanket stitch.
I also finished July's "Tisket a Tasket block". Yes, this also has a wonky handle. I would hate to disappoint you all. LOL!
I was also able to get 2 quilts pinned today using the table at the quilt shop. The next 2 weekends will be spent quilting. This is when I wish I had room for an HQ16 setup.

Have a great week!!!

OOPS.... I forgot to add the seven scrappy red/white 9-patches to my accomplishments. I am all caught up with the challenge of one a day till end of summer.

I love your blocks. Y-seams are not that difficult !

CJ said...

Okay Miss Wonky! LOL Your blocks all look terrific, I don't see any wonkiness! I am just loving those blue blocks so much!

You need to hand piece the blocks with Y seams, so easy to do....

I love the fabrics you are using for the Sampler, much better contrast than the author used. Are you going to do that block with the two people in it? I'm going to skip that one and do something different....when I get around to this quilt.

PS - Love the Tisket block :0)

All of your blocks look wonderful! The bridal sampler blocks are so pretty. You did a great job on the Y seams. And the Tisket a Tasket block is really sweet. What a pile of red and white 9 patches!

Your basket block looks awesome! I'm with you on the Y-seams. Ugh! But I love seeing your SBS blocks. If I ever finish my Jane, I think I may give that one a go.

I see the dreaded Tennessee amongst the stash of blocks - you've done a great job Yvette.
