    square yoyos

    I came upon this site, and since I've had an interest in quilting techniques that are 3d, thought someone here might be interested too. I envision using these yoyos on a quilt someday

    If you want, explore the whole site, she has a lot of good ideas

    If this 'she' is on this board, thank you for sharing your tutes!

    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    Like the looks of the square yoyo. I need to copy/paste her instructions and make a few to fully understand the how-to-do of them but hers look great.

    The minute I got on that site, I knew it was Finland. Just seeing some familiar words. Many Finish people in the UP of MI and I grew up hearing a lot of that language and had a great best friend in my early marriage years who taught me some words of Finish. Just a moment of nostalgia. I can still count up to 7, and then I am lost.

    I think there's a rule that if you make something from a Finish site, you have to be able to count the UFOs in Finish, so you're limited to 7.
    Not a bad rule!

    Even when I translated to English it was confusing or I missed something in reading it.....like what wire? What/how cardboard? Maybe I need another cuppa.....have too many other projects floating around in my head don't need more. Thanks for the look-see though.

    I couldn't open the translated to English but from the pictures it looks like you make your round one and make a cardboard square which you place the round one on sew behind it to make the round one square. I could be wrong but I will have to go back to the link and see if it will translate to English.

    But if that way I thought the pictures mean why could one just glue the back t=of the round yoyo then sew two square yoyo together or even mark the back with a pencil sew lines on the back then sew the two backs (right sides together facing) like doing a cathedral ceiling (mock) type. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gKvdrexKE4
