    Question Newbie Quilter

    Hello fellow quilters! I am new to quilting although my mother was a comsumate seamstress with many star quilts created for heirlooms. I have built a few quilts but would like to stick with my native Star Quilts. I am a Lakota Native American from Eagle Butte, South Dakota. I have had many problems with Y-seams and the star quilt centers matching up. I am looking for a good tutorial on the Y-seam...it's been a bear for me but I know someone out there can help me! I have 4 stars built...but I can't go further until I can master the Y. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Ah yes, the dreaded Y seams! I see someone has posted a link for you and that should give you some pointers.

    Welcome. Hoping you post pictures of your quilts! When I saw the "Lakota" I had to see who you were. Our daughter lives in Sioux Falls.

    You will enjoy all the quilting talk on the site.
