    I didn't believe it until I saw it.

    I have a tree skirt that I put aside because of those wretched y seams... I believe I am going to take it out and work on it again!!

    This is a wonderful video. How easy she made the seam seem. I love this woman. Sure miss her on PBS where I used to be able to watch her programs. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! What a great tip! I wonder, though, if you could keep the block under the presser foot with needle down and fanagle your fabric to finish that seam (without taking your block out). Make sense? I'll have to try that some time.

    It works great I just tried it. Kept the needle down and just spun the block around just like she said.
