I'm so impressed, I'm serious girlfriend. You made 9 Yo Yo quilts, all by hand. Lord . You have the patience of JOB. I know what Yo Yo quilts are. I have a verry old one sitting right next to me in a box. My dear buddi bought for me at a yard sale. I want to put it together but it really needs cleaned first, and I'm afraid to try. Sorry to get off track,,,, Welcome you will really enjoy youself here. Lots of friendly people and lots of info. Read some of the threads. And look at the pictures, there is so much talent and creativity. Enjoy.

Hi Judy,
I'm Sharon from NC. lol I live in Jacksonville along the coast. I, too, enjoy the quilting since I retired.

I'm really very impressed with the nine yoyo quilts. I've never tried to make one but it's in one of my notebooks To Do.

Sharon

the yoyo's are just plain fun to do,i can sew several circles every nite,and before long they add up.to clean one of mine i layed it on the floor flat on top of a sheet.then i put rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and misitd it,as i did this i used a clean new sponge and dabbed the dirty spots,the next morning i layed it in the porch to air out. this worked for me,good luck

I was looking at the yo yo's on internet, look at these cute ideas using yoyo's lots of tree ornaments , and nice hot pads
http://www.cddesigns.com/AfternoonProj/YoYo/projects.htm

I was reading an article about templates for them and a CD was suggested. I think we all get them in the mail from time to time, or can pick them up in stores., what a great idea for a circle.

Never tried a yo yo. I could make a hot pad with this. Maybe a pot holder. I saw on simply quilts once a lady made perfect grape applique similar to this. The stitching is the same only she put a plastic washer in the middle and then pulled making a perfect circle. Then press to keep formation, remove washer and then repull and sew. It looked so easy. I haven't tried it yet but I will someday.
