This quilt idea was from a quilt shown in the magazine Miniature Quilts, Issue 61. As it's pictured in the magazine, it has 260 yo-yos and was made by Michaele Daramus. The yo-yos are 1 and 1/4 inch in diameter.
After making a lot of yo-yos, and looking at the size of the quilt as per the instructions, I decided I wanted a smaller flag, and made my yo-yos into two flags. I gave one away to a friend as a gift, and kept the one you see below. It has 126 yo-yos, and measures 9.5" by 15."
The small log home is in the living room of our cabin in Michigan. The grandchildren are getting too old to play with it, but I love it because it looks very similar to the outside of the real cabin. There are several animals (deer, bear, elk, etc.) who live inside this toy cabin. Sometime I will show the back of the toy cabin, and all the animals who live there.
I hope you have a fun filled week! We Americans are celebrating our freedom with lots of American flags flying. We are at our cabin for the summer, chilling out in the cool breezes from the lake. Life is Good!
