Yo Yo Fun

Tuesday after basting my quilts I stopped at JoAnn's to pick up more background fabric for my uneven nine patch. I was unable to find an exact match for one of them. As a scrap quilter that doesn't bother me too much. It's close though it reads lighter than the other one. After completing the top I grabbed my yo yo maker and made a bunch of yo yos for the intersections.
 I might need to make one more. Not sure I'mm thrilled with the first on in the second row. It's a little to dark next to the background.
I had so much fun making yo yos I got on pintrest to spark my creativity. Here are a few of the fun projects I found.
Yo Yo Catapiller

  1. I've never made yo-yos but I like the way you are using them in your quilt. :)

  2. I really like the yoyo’s as cornerstones. Your quilt is beautiful! Have fun with your yo-yo projects.

  3. Your Improved Nine-patches look so good with added yoyos. I like the little owls, too. Thanks.

  4. I like your improved nine patch quilt!

  5. The high value colors in your quilt look awesome! that's right right? Volume = presence of color? Value = Saturation of color? I'm off do do some research now. lol

  6. I love the bright cheerful colors. I think the yoyos make a perfect addition to your quilt at the corners.

  7. Your quilt looks like fun. I used to make yoyo clowns..always a fun project.
