I love a good yo yo!

I've only worked on this sporadically.  Someone asked me am I going to put a backing on it.
That would defeat my centering of certain little eye-candy gems on the backsides of the yo-yos.

To me, that was the fun part of searching my fabric stash and making the yo-yos.
I loved putting Missouri on the back of this one.
I kind of think of it as an "I Spy" project preserving little fabric treasures.

I think it came out wonderfully and it would be beautiful laid out on a darker blanket or quilt.

I have one of these in a double bed size that my mom made in the 1930's. No backing required. I treasure it. There are fabrics from my sun dresses. She finished it after her grandsons were born and so there is fabric from their shirts that I made for them. I also have a clipping from the newspaper advertising
the pattern.

So cool, love it.

That makes the back as interesting to look at as the front!

Love your I SPY back on your Yo Yo top. Very creative!

I love the yo yos and you have become the queen of all yo yos...What about Good Earth? I can't wait to see that one completed.
