Do you find yourself passing over quilt blocks and patterns that require stitching Y-seams? While they can seem intimidating, they’re really quite simple once you know how.
Accurate piecing of other parts of the block sets the stage for successful Y-seams. Just take your time and follow the instructions in the video for making an eight point star.
Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts does an excellent job of explaining the process. You’ll soon have Y-seams mastered, opening up a whole world of quilting possibilities!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
