Yoyo Cottage

Yoyo Cottage

If you loved making Yoyo Garden, or just love cute little house quilts, this is for you! This is a mini-quilt, utilizing fusible applique and tiny yo-yos made from Clover's small yo-yo maker. This is just plain fun to make. Also included are my instructions for a quick, machine stitched and fused binding and a fused-on backing. Once you have made one this way, you will use this technique often when making small wall-hanging quilts.
