Center Block Y Seams Part A&B DONE!!! (oops!)
(PS: Oops! I goofed- I have to take off my corners and re-size the very center, it's too big. I misread the instructions to square up to 13 1/4 reading it as 13 3/4. At least I am no farther and can fix it pretty quickly.)
OK, it's not perfect, but I hadn't counted on that in the least bit; however, my Y seams are DONE!!!! I thought there were only 8 of them but no, there were sneaky ones too. I still don't have the hang of it. I'm getting closer though- I'm still a beginner when it comes to fancy piecing!
The Y seams are on the outer corner pieces that look like a crown. I made two of the crownish pieces with a triangle for the Y seam. Then a square was pieced between them followed by triangles on either side.
I started with center square Part A.
Then added the corners (part B)
The pieces I completed tonight pieced to the center square (parts A & B ) between the red and green spotty corners. Once all of them were attached I had a bigger square. I had to play around with them to get it to fit, as I mentioned, they were all over the place.
I still need to square it off to 18 1/2 inches and then add the next border before the flying geese border that goes between the other 8 blocks.
This is what it should look like when I have completed it- based on the sample hung on the quilt shop wall during our block of the month meetings.
