Yo-Yo Quilt

I worked on this quilt for a long time. Piecing was fairly quick, but making and appliquing yo-yos was time consuming. The challenge was laying out the finished yo-yos while our black cat Magellan chased them. Even after they were pinned into place, his little mouth pulled the pins out -- maybe this is "reverse sewing?" The finished top was quilted by a machine quilter and I bound the edge by hand. The 78"x78" quilt will fit a queen size bed with a 9" hang on three sides. I'm proud of it!

I showed this quilt in a previous post, but with the possibility of it going to a new home, I thought new pictures were in order.
