To Y-seam or not to Y-seam? How to construct a LeMoyne Star quilt block can be a matter of choice. Sara Gallegos shows you the classic set-in construction and a simplified, triangle-based technique that eliminates the Y-seam.
The original table runner, called Cosmic Stars, was designed by Deborah Kalenty, and appeared in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting July/August 2015 which is also featured in the 3400 series pattern eBooklet. Sara selected Deborah’s pattern in order to showcase different techniques for constructing Y-seams (also called “in-set seams”). The fabric she used was from Silk Road Fusion collection by Art Gallery Fabrics.
