    Kaye Wood has an excellent You Tube video showing her different method that is foolproof.

    Y seams. Yuck. That's is what the Y stand for. LOL :lol: :lol: :lol:
    I've done them. I'd do them again if I had to, but I hate them.

    Good luck with yours. I know a lot of quilters have no problem with them. I'm sure it's just me that hates them.LOL :D :D :D

    This is how I do them. It is important to mark the dots which are each 1/4" in from each edge.

    Good advice from madquilter, amma & sewcrafty. I sure wish I would have known that when I first tried them. Swore I would never do them again until someone made me do it and gave me this advice. Clear sailing after that.
