    You did an awesome job. I'm afraid to attempt one of these yet... maybe someday.

    I watched one pieced on Simply Quilts once, and have never had trouble with Y-piecing after that. There's also a great pattern in the book, "Quilts, Quilts, & More Quilts" by McClun & Nownes that helped out a lot. I wonder if that episode on Y-piecing can be found in the Simply Quilts archives. I would recommend that to anyone who wants to do this kind of piecing. I must admit, I practiced, practiced, practiced.

    In the past year, and I think it was before I joined the board, I saw an article that showed how to piece each row of the star, then sew the rows together. No Y seams. It involved a technique similar to putting Trip Around the World together. I hope this gives everyone an idea. I wish I could remember where I saw it. Maybe it's online somewhere by now.
