    Help! with inset seams

    At least I think that's the name - when you need to attach a piece to two other pieces where there is a corner. Is that clear? I bought a kit, first had to make the templates, then cut the pieces, so there are certainly little errors in the edges. Now I need to join a triangle to two other pieces that are already joined. I end up with a pucker. Have ripped, ripped, ripped. Are there any tutorials or videos to help with this? Thanks!

      The video from above is excellent. I've always heard them referred to as "Y" seams. I took a class one time and had to do 12 blocks with three of these y-seams in each block. I became quite proficient at them after that My trick for them is to leave two stitches on each side of the pivot - but two stitches isn't very much when doing them by machine. I have a friend who hand sews everything when quilting and her y-seams seem easier when I watched her (she claims her hand sewing allows her to put the needle exactly where it belongs to get get perfect match-ups of everything). Good luck with your quilt.
