WOW a yo yo quilt, how big? It takes a while with yo yo's unless they are realy big yo yo's. Well I think it will be easier for her to learn with you teaching her. I sure she is glad you are! Have fun.

Yeah, I have yo yo's all over the house. A couple of months ago my husband and I went to Alaska (He is from there, we live in SC) and during the trip on flight I made even more yo yo's. Don't know what I will ever do with them. Hey I will send them to your grand daughter. They are two inches also. HEE HEE. Then maybe someday that quilt will be made. :wink:

Hi Bev, I'm also teaching my granddaughter to quilt. She's 8 years old so she doesn't have a long attention span, but she's really excited about learning. She pieced a small wall hanging that she's quilting now. Next we are going to start on crazy quilt blocks for another wall hanging. How old is your granddaughter?
