Yo-Yo Quilt Table Runner


Here is my very first project with all those yo-yo's I have made. It is a table runner and I have made two squares to set dishes on like bowls, etc. I do love make these yo-yo's and over the winter months I hope to make a bed quilt or at least a lap quilt.

Thank you so much for the comment. I used a music disk to cut the yo-yo's so when gathered they are about 2 inches round. I use quilting thread to gather and sew together. I do love my yo-yo's

Yes, I double my thread. I am getting ready to make a quilt that will have the 2" yo-yo and a 1" yo-yo sew on top of the 2". So really it is double yo-yo's, I have also seen larger yo-yo and real mini ones too. Please send a picture when you have done some and I'll post on the blog or if you have a blog I'll cross promote.
