Everyone needs a standby project; something to pick up and work on when there is simply nothing else prepared for hand-sewing. Yo-yos are my thing. They were started with nothing in mind other than having something to do. The first fabrics I grabbed were my reds and that's the colour I've stuck with. I still love the idea of having a collection of red & white quilts and think a Yo-yo quilt will fit in beautifully.
As you know I make a new red & white quilt each year. Something tells me this quilt won't be finished in time for this Christmas or the next or even the one after that. My deadline is Christmas 2019 – yes that’s right 2019. This is a long term project and besides, I only get to work on it when there is nothing else to do and that rarely happens.
