Default Right angled seams?

Hi, All,

Has anyone ever used right-angled seams to bring parts of a quilt top together? I've used them in garment sewing. Is the the concept the same?

Thanks!

Yes this is often used in quilting but in quilting it is referred to as a set in seam or a Y seam. Most commonly used in the traditional piecing methods for:
Lemoyne Star
Lone Star (AKA Star of Bethlehem)
Tumbling blocks
Attic windows

Judy Niemeyer uses them a lot in her patterns as does Edyta Sitar. It is an invaluable skill to have in your quilt making arsenal.

If you are asking about darts, I have used an invisible ladder stitch to sew a small dart in a wonky border. It was in a corner and I then quilted a line on top, it worked perfectly. I have seen several long arm quilter's quilt a dart in wavy borders.

I agree with feline. You might be thinking of a "Y" seam.

Set in seams, of course! Thank you everyone! (And, sorry for the delay in getting back to you--I thought I'd already responded, but I guess I didn't!).
