    Can you post a pic of the block? Sometimes you can avoid those V seams.
    Just depends on the block you're making.

    I always try to come up with a different assembly path that allows me to make strips or rows, and then put the strips or rows together.

    I could have avoided the Y seams altogether in the quilts that I'm making but unfortunately I followed the pattern and didn't realize until later that if I hadn't I could have cut triangles instead of squares but I didn't have enough fabric to redo them.

    The dot method works well.

    Think how pleased with your self you will be when you figure out how to do it! :)

    If you can find an episode of Simply Quilts where they show you how to do Tumbling Blocks, they show you how to do it without the Y seams. Good luck. I've used this technique and I love it and it's so easy.
