GeneGuy, Y-seams don't have to be "nasty". The biggest thing to remember is to start sewing and stop sewing 1/4 inch from the edge of the seam. Don't be afraid to mark the spot where you need to insert your needle. The first quilt I ever made was a tumbling baby block which uses the Y-seam to connect diamond shapes. By the time I completed this quilt I understood the directions and the concept.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further help with it.

Mary/Rosebud
