I have 3 strips of the yoyos made and I really like how it is coming along. The two lighter strips have been joined and they will be just the right size to put up over pillows on a bed just as I had hoped. The rest of the quilt will be a patchwork of the darker blocks.
Yesterday, I went to my favorite quilt shop to look for a backing for the coverlet (so I can make it like the vintage one I saw at a show a while ago). We found the perfect batik! Alas, the bolt was a little short and there wasn't enough for my project. There was another one but it just didn't show as well. Oh well, new shipments are coming in and it gives me another excuse to visit the shop---not that I really NEED an excuse. But all was not lost. I found some great fall fabric!
