YO-YO QUILT IS DONE!!

I have actually finished this long desired Yo-Yo quilt. I have always admired the vintage yo-yo quilts I've seen over the years and always wanted to have one of my own. I was able to complete this quilt with the help of many blogging freinds who kindly sent me scraps to add to the overall peach, pink and yellow color scheme. I thank you all very much. Another great factor in completing this is the Clover Yo-Yo maker, it sped things up considerably, and was so easy to use with great results. There are 1,176 yo-yo's and the quilt measures 42" X 63". Each completed yo-yo is 1 1/2". I was looking for the essence of ice cream sherbert! It is bordered by one row of light green and one row of dark green. Once again, thanks to my freinds for their generosity. Did you notice Jelly Bean's rear end? You can click on the picture to enlarge it.

Wow! The colors are gorgeous! And of course the picture is only enhanced by the cat parts we can see. I made a small yo-yo quilt and I can't even imagine making one this size!

I invite you to link up to my "Finished for Friday" at my blog if you'd like. This is such an amazing accomplishment.
