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.
