I had a bag full of yo-yo's. I hadn't counted them, but I just knew they were going to make at least ten blocks!
When all was said and done, I only had made enough for an additional six blocks. These have just been glued onto the hourglass sections. I applique them down at night while watching TV.
I need to make 576 yo-yo's. My count so far is 126! This quilt is going to be very old fashioned yet much stronger than the original quilts made with yo-yo's back in the old days. I'm making the yo-yo's with perle cotton instead of thread. A tapestry needle works well with the perle cotton also. I'm appliqueing the yo-yo's to the hourglass section using silk thread, which "melts" into the fabric.
This quilt is fun to make but will not be finished anytime in the near future. The yo-yo's are very portable and I take my supplies with me wherever I go so I can whip up a few of them while traveling, as long as the road isn't too windy. (No wonder English is such a hard language.....windy as is curvy and windy as is windswept).
I hope you all have a perfect day while trying to perfect your quilting skills! I will not subject you to anymore on this subject. I know, I know, it is way too early in the morning for this!
