    Nature's Lodge

    I am having a terrible time with Tonga Nature's Lodge. I can not get the Y seams in block 9 to form 90* angles. I'm not a proficient quilter but my daughter wanted this pattern for her wedding. It's the page 10 instructions that are killing me. Any help would be appreciated.

    Maybe post this in the Quilting Questions sections. You might get more help. I'm not familiar with this pattern. Sorry

      when you are in the forum there should be a list of subjects to post in. quilting questions, all the way down to recipes.

    If you do a google search for "Y seam tutorials" you will find lots of good ones. I'll link to one below. Y seams don't typically form 90-degree angles so you may be worrying needlessly. Maybe someone will come along that has made this pattern.

      Someone on here might have the pattern but if not it would be good to reach out to the pattern designer.

        Yes. That is the pattern and the Y seams are in the middle square. They are the colored diamond pieces around the outside.

      Lynette,

      Hello &Welcome

      Can you post a picture of your fabric pieces? We will try to help you.

      I mark the 1/4 inch seam first on both pieces to see where they should meet.

        https://www.keepsakequilting.com/Ton...-Lodge-Pattern larger photo here. Y seams are not things i do much. usually change that part to half square triangles myself. marking where you need to stop, 1/4 inch away from seam corner, then remove from needle, fold triangle fabric over to other seam you need to stitch it on and replace under needle right where you left off. Do look at some directions, Utube or other and you will get it.

          thats how I have been handling it. Glad I'm not alone. I was thinking there must be a better way but not if thats the way you do it because your work is outstanding

        Would this work for you? I think it will prevent "Y" seams.

        Sew the 9 blocks together in a traditional row setting (outlined in yellow) using 3 across & 3 down.

        Then sew the corner triangle blocks onto the 9 blocks (outlined in aqua)

        Next step is to add the borders.
