You don't have that seam when you use the traditional method with Y seams. I don't know what I hate more -- the extra seam, or making Y seams!!!

    You might want to check Laura Nownes BOM 2013 free onCraftys..depending on your fabric choice for that top split block, you can barely tell it was sewn that way. Just an idea you could check out.
