A - Z : Y = Y-seam

Le cauchemar des quilteurs ! Une couture en Y est nécessaire quand au moins 3 pièces de tissus se rencontrent en une pointe. Ces coutures ont souvent la forme d'un Y, d'où le nom.
The quilters' nightmare! A Y-seam, sometimes called a set-in seam or an inset seam, is necessary when three (or more) pieces of fabric that have angles other than 90 degrees meet at one point. Such seams often form a Y shape, hence the name.

  1. The Y seam! exactly what I am working on - so many say you can not do Hexies by machine but if you take your time it works out fine!

  2. That looks more complicated than what I have done with a sewing machine... :D

    The Multicolored Diary

    1. Yes it looks complicated, but with tutorials, it's easier ;) Still tricky the first time ;P

  3. I haven't tackled Y-seams much! Maybe someday. Thanks for linking up to What I Made Monday.

  4. I remember when Y seams were horrible monsters I hated the very thought of. :) It's funny now, because I have zero problem with them, either by hand or at the machine. I did a king size quilt that had tons of Y seams, and about 1/3 of the way through that, they suddenly clicked so they're a breeze. I'm still waiting for a few quilting techniques to do that same "click" for me. . . :D

    1. I do too ;))
      Thanks for visiting, and happy quilting !

  5. Thanks for popping back to my Blog it was good of you to do so (so . . sew . . . .Ho Ho Ho) OK that was a rubbish Joke, but we are fast approaching the end of the A to Z.

    1. That's the fun part of the Challenge, visiting blogs ;) And yours is eccentricly cool!

  6. Oh, I see what you mean. Those would be tricky.

  7. Hmm, never realized there was a name for that.

    1. Not a difficult one ;) Sometimes it's just easier to name things, sounds like we tamed them ;P

  8. I did hand-sew one tumbling blocks quilt, but in general I avoid Y-seams like the plague!
    Black and White: Y is for Ypotryll

    1. In quilting, there is always a way to avoid things we don't want to do ;)

  9. Y seams are soooo hard! Angles are hard for me, especially trying to make them lay flat, even when ironed!

  10. Oh yes!! You've found me (and everyone else) a tutorial! Much appreciated :) This is why one should go back and check if they've missed any A to Z posts lol
