Well what happened that it didn't turn out flat?  It really doesn't look that hard, or am I missing something, LOL  I will work on this and some of the others tomorrow at the quilting bee.

Here's mine. I'm gradually loosing my fear of Y seams, not quite so intimidating. But, I still will never make an entire quilt of blocks that are Y seams. Especially not as many as this one. I did find that if I mark the entire 1/4" seams on all sides of the diamond piece, it's a bit easier. Before I just marked the corner dots.

Nana, I had some buckling also. The block is a bit short of 6-1/2" but it's close enough.

I figured it just needed pressing. It's not very noticeable.

Judy

Mine turned out a bit short of 6 1/2 in. too.   I also find that if I mark the whole seam allowance it makes the Y seams a little easier.

Thanks Nana.  I think I'm almost grateful to this project for forcing me to do Y seams. :-)
