Can't Avoid the Y-Seams/Conquering the Y-Seams!

When I first saw the September Westering Women block, I was looking for an alternative block like last month that omitted the Y-seams, but no luck!

I am so pleased to say that after sewing twelve (12!) Y-seams I think I have finally conquered my fear of Y-seams. I am really pleased with how this block turned out. It is a 12" block called Sage Bud.

I have learned that marking, and careful sewing from the 1/4" mark are the secrets to Y-seams. I recently saw on a Craftsy class that a little piece of sandpaper under the fabric helps with marking, and it did.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
