Yoyo Garden

Yoyo Garden

This is a mini-quilt (12" x 15") that may be used as a small wall-hanging. It is a very easy beginning applique project, that could be used for teaching children to sew. You will make yo-yo's using Clover Yo-yo makers in 3 diferent sizes. Then you will create your little garden using leaves and stems that are free cut from fabric with Wonder Under Fusible web applied to the back. You can lay out your little garden just like mine or however you wish. Also included are my instructions for a quick machine-stitched and fused binding and then fused-on backing. You will love this! Not intended for use on regular quilts, but for little wall-hangings it is perfect!
