This fun quilt was made by me! It my favorite quilt I have sewn so far. I love sewing yo yos! And these giant yo yos melt my heart. I first learned to make yo yos from my Grandma Jackie and I think I made about a million the summer she taught me.
This quilt took me quite a bit of time but I would haul my fabric, needle & thread around in my purse and work on them here and there when I had a minute. We made several trips to the park this summer and while the boys were playing I would be stitching. The inspiration for this quilt came from my new little baby boy. I made sure I snapped some pictures of him on the quilt.
