    My most complicated project yet - Y seams

    This went together pretty easily once I got the hang of it - but a few challenging spots! I'm happy with it so far, and am shopping for backing fabric as I have nothing left of any of the fabric used on the front.

    Wow, this is on my "to do" list. Even have the same pattern! You did a great good of selecting fabrics with just the right intensity to give the blocks that 3D look!
    Blessings!

    Beautiful-love your choice of colors and placement. Great job. I hate y-seams-----rank them right up there with a colonoscopy.

    Very pretty. I have a project that calls for Y-seams that I will be tackling in the next couple of days. Hope mine turns out anywhere near as nice as yours.
