    The pieces are pretty small now but yes they could, it would add a lot of bulk to them as well,

    the little square showing is about 5/8" so cut that in half and add the fabric for 4 pieces, it is not bad if they are square but they will be mostly on one side.

    There are other Y seams coming up too, perhaps it's best I just bite the bullet and master it! LOL *falls on floor and twitches for a while*

    you'll be a master of the Y in no time - you'll have no choice when making a jane.

    people will master: Paper Piecing, Y seams, Curved seams, and various forms of applique.

    thats what makes a jane quilt a right of passage for quilters.

    From what I have seen, there are a few blocks that use the y seams, part of doing the Jane is learning new things right? so jump on it! Check out BR4, that is on piece on the bottom, and BR10 and RS 6 just to name a few as well as the kite one that I just did.

    People will also master: seam ripping, starting over, screaming, and twitching. ;-)

    LOL I might be slightly prone to throwing things as well as cursing! ;-)

    Luckily, the friendship, support, and fun gained from being involved far outweighs the frustrations. :-)

    A short tute on y seams, this will work for a lot of them, there are a few differences if you are using a corner in one piece of fabric, but this is the logistics of it anyway. If you have a bit of time at the end on a sewing session, maybe do a couple of them to practice,

    I finally finished week1 blocks and the triangle! It took me awhile to get started. I'm using Civil war fabric ,now I'm having doubts.
    I'm a little behide and I want to catch up, this is so addicting. Will we be doing applique soon?

    week 5 has some simple applique just to get some practice before the more complex appliques.

    why are you 2nd guessing your fabric choice?

    civil war is a classic choice that will always be admired. its kinda like having that classic blazer that never goes out of style.

    you're not behind so don't worry about it yet.

    You are very welcome, I know that before long they are coming up, and didn't want people to panic if they had not done them, this way they have a chance to practice a few before having to do it on a block, A few scraps and 5 min at the end or beginning and they will be all set to go,

    This is one thing about the blocks that I'm really not worried about. I am currently hand piecing my 2nd Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. Let me tell ya, by the time you've pieced a few thousand hexagons, Y seams are no problem :-)

    Tiffany - my aunt had that problem with both eyes. They ended up sewing up half of her eyelids to the eyeballs would stay in. They came out when she sneezed as she aged. Her eyes looked so funny, half-sewed!

    I just finished week 3 blocks which I'll post tomorrow or later...not sure when I'll be able to photograph...I'm getting a new laptop this week as the one I'm working on is having "issues". So, I may need to wait to transfer all my data, photos etc. to the new machine. Anyway, I am happy, for the most part, about the blocks. The one was a bear, can't recall which at the moment. I'm scared to post...seems like whenever I do I see a mistake!! LOL.
    Your blocks are beautiful!

    And after having kids, I have to cross my legs when I sneeze too so other things don't fall out! LOL
    Don't ya just hate that??!?!?!?!?

    You are so welcome KLue - just a little thanks for all you're doing here.

    The lady at the LQS wasn't sure they qualified as "japanese indigos" so I was concerned they weren't what you were using. What I liked about the bunnies and the dragonflies was the small amount of red in them. I don't know if it's too out of what you want, or if it's too orangy...but if they don't work, they can sit in your stash for just the right project. I figured that has to be a block having to do with rabbits, bunnies or something...
