I Am So Excited!

I am going to send you over to Staci at the confused quilter to see the story of my yo-yo quilt. She did such a wonderful job and I loved sharing my quilt so much I started my own blog. Well, in my travels this morning I came across a yo-yo quilt along hosted by Penny. How exciting is that!  I'm a little ahead of the group because I make yo-yos at night when I'm watching TV. Yo-yos out of modern fabric are very cool. Just a small sample of this years crop.



I have been hard at work this week finishing up the first of two of my warm cool quilt along.



Yesterday I cut 200 kaleidoscope pieces and corner pieces for my kaleidoscope quilt along.


I am also working on my 'No Prints Allowed' piece for Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild. I can't show you that one yet. That isn't due until July so I have some time on that one. 

Joining the quilt along groups really keeps me on my toes and motivated to finish projects. Just what I need since I have a hard time sticking to a project once I know how it is going to look. My usual mode is to want to start something else. Thank you Jeni, Elizabeth and Penny for hosting these quilt along groups and allowing me to participate.

Happy sewing until next time.

Hey Sharon! I saw that yo-yo QA yesterday and thought of you! Should have known you'd have your y0-yo radar up and you were already there!

I love your warm-cool quilt! I'm adding one of these to my ever-growing list of projects to do one day.

Now you have me wanting to work on yo-yos. I have a bunch made with batiks but I can see I need to do some with Kaffe fabrics too.
