I'm totally excited!!! It's really starting to come together.
Having the blocks up where I can see them will help me chose the "right" layout, get a handle on what fabs may or may not be dominating the quilt, and know what size "extras" I should add to keep a good balance. I'm so excited!!!
Trace asked another great question. Have I told you all how much I love questions? I do. I have a couple more I'll get to, also, but Trace asked, "Y seams?" Why not? LOL. Sorry. I had to write that. Y seams, or inset seams, are basically where 3 seams meet. Like mitered corners (picture a frame). Many people (like whoever wrote the info at this link) will tell you it's simple to do, just mark well, take your time, blah, blah, blah - but really: they're evil. Especially if the "frame" part is pieced like the equilateral triangle border I put around that one flag. And in semi-miniature. Like so:
|What was I thinking?!?!?!|
All the seams involved in the border didn't help, either, but now that I've done it... it's done. Won't do it again any time soon. And I mean it.
Thanks for asking, Trace! And thank YOU for reading!
