YoYo's and Beads
This quilt is for my mom. It is very small, only 16" by 16". Last January when my husband was in LaJolla CA for a business trip, he took suddenly ill and was admitted to Scripps Memorial. I got the call and went running out there to be with him. While going back and forth from the hotel to the hospital I found this lovely quilt shop in LaJolla and looked for something I could do by hand because I was needed something to do with my time during his week long hospital stay. So I bought this Moda Charm Square pack and made some YoYo's. These YoYo's have been sitting around with nothing special planned and then my mom took them and put them on this fabric and gave it back to me. I did the quilting and the embellishing with the beads and now just have to put the border on. The border is the scraps from cutting out the YoYos from the Charm packs. The scraps are ironed onto double sided wonder that sits on top of some white fabric and then crazy quilted in place. The only additional fabric that was used is the peice under the yoyo's.
The beading and quilting are hand done.
