Who doesn't like those fluffy little circles of fabric we call yo-yos? They inspire us to make entire quilts of them or to just add a few(or many) to embellish a quilt or a jacket.
Sew Take A Hike has a nice two part tutorial on the yo-yo. She shows how to use the Clover yo-yo maker. Part Two show how to sew them together with a sewing machine. I liked that idea as it can become tedious to sew them all together by hand.
Wild Flowers has a photo of a lovely white quilt with yo-yos attached to the top. This is such a sweet and clean look. Isn't this bedwarmer sweet? It is from Annie's E Patterns. And you don't have to make thousands of them to make something nice. I think everyone has seen this photo of Amy Butler's Bloom Quilt but I had to put it in this post. It is just too yo-yo like to leave out.
Angry Chicken posted an over the top quilt from a Japanese magazine. What a combination this is. This pillow from MadMin is so pretty too. Just scroll down a bit and look for that pillow. Hope you enjoyed these creative uses of yo-yos and have a nice sewing day. Diana
