I have a thought. Grace why don't you host a yo-yo swap? Maybe 7 one inch or 1 1/2" yo-yo's per set. That way we would be able to change up our collections. Perhaps suggest themes so that we might be able to make a small quilt or Christmas or 4th of July items.
Just a thought,
Kathy

Krista,, I still have some of MaryJane's fabric left,, enough to make fun sassy red, yellow and blue multi-color yoyos.

Kathy yoyo's are so relaxing, for me anyway..
We did a yoyo swap years ago and like quilt block swaps,, it's amazing how a 5" block is not necessarily 5" to each block maker,, same with yoyos.. lolol!
But, I just might organize a yoyo swap in the summer.. yes, it would be fun..
I use a simple old CD for my templete that way all my yoyos are the same... I use to have a Accu-quilt machine,, which I rarely used so I sold it to an avid quilter.. it was great for cutting out circles... so that was pretty dumb of me, to get rid of it...

I also have a Heart shape yoyo maker and a flower yoyo maker.. but they do require a lot of fussing... and are more time consuming.. so I only make them for special ornaments/decoration.

Grace, that yo-yo banner is really clever and cute! You have come up with so many different and darling uses for yo-yos. How do you think them all up?

I too love your yo-yo creations. I really liked the Christmas one you posted earlier. Maybe I'll try a little coaster or something to start with. I know yo-yo's aren't hard to make I just never do it. The hand stitching I do is crochet :)

Same here Heather. I tried one last year, but was guessing on how to do it and it turned out a big mess. Haven’t tried one since. But I love crochet and nothing about scares me. I’m not sure why yo yos intimidate me so much.

You can buy a yoyo templet by Clover,, but I think it wastes to much fabric and takes me longer to set up, stitch, disassemble and the fussy finger the yoyo into place.
I just sew a running stitch.. I fold over the edge about 6mm,, then I stitch about 2mm from the folded edge... then I run my needle through a pleat, knot it and cut off the excess thread,,,

I wish I could invite you over for a yoyo, tea & scones party.. and then afterwards,,, you gals could help me with crocheting...

I just purchased an Accuquilt Go along with the yo-yo template, plus a couple more dies including the adorable Scotty! I think that I will have fun with this gadget as my son said. LoL but I will thank my dear Uncle Sam for the gift.

Oh Kathy, I am sew happy for you getting a Go Cutter. I have the GO Big electronic one. Which did you get? And I have around 30 or more of the dies. Be sure to register online with them. They have lots of free patterns and free download embroideries to complement your cutouts. I know they have the circle ones cause I have them. I don't have the Scottie die, but I'm sure I have seen a companion embroidery on that site. With all my silly handicaps I would never be able to do a lot of the projects I do if I didn't have my GO cutter and embroidery machine. Together they keep me going. Wanna swap a project with me? I have an extra little mini quilt stand I would be happy to send you and we could swap mini-quilts. Let me know if you are interested.

I would love to swap with you. I have a mini-stand so hopefully, it will be big enough. My niece has multiple problems and is who suggested that I get the Accuquilt Go. She quilts all of the time and thought I would enjoy the machine also.
I will be happy to send you a Scottie to start with, or any other block that I have a die for....lol I don't have many yet, just the round, hexie, and block that came with the machine.

Awesome Kathy. I'd love a Scottie. Now what's your pleasure? I have many dies from flowers to hearts to seasons to holidays. You name it I probably have it. How tall and how wide is your mini stand. Mine is approximately 6x6.

Jean I would enjoy flowers.
I just purchased the Owl die on eBay, I am so excited!
Looking forward to this swap so I guess I need to hurry and finish some of my other swaps and get started on this one.

Yes, how big are the mini quilts? and what does the mini quilt stand look like? Sounds like fun. Is there a certain size of the pieces?

I thought about getting a GO cutter, but decided I have enough gadgets I don't use much and the GO is not cheap. LOL! I have a HUGE tub or two of scraps.

OK so let's talk about mini quilts. First see these pix for reference . . .
The Irish Chain as well as other traditional quilt designs are done mainly with strip piecing. So, yes, they look tiny and intricate, but are really easy peasy to do. The appliques are mainly done using my GO die cutouts and accompanying embroidery which is mostly free (the embroidery) on the GO website. These quiltlets are basically 6"x12" and consist of 4 six inch blocks sewn together. I got this neat book from Nancy's Notions several years ago. but I think it's still available.
Now, about the stands -- as you can see, there are two different ones. I found my first ones at a local thrift store, but they may be available online. I do have one extra of the larger one that I would be happy to share -- first come first served. If I had more I would do a "real" swap and send everyone a quilt stand. But alas one extra is all that's left.
Taking all the above into consideration, I would love to do a mini-quilt exchange with anyone who is interested. So far Kathy is a taker Her Scottie should be perfect for a 6" block and too cute.

Farmgirl hugs,
jean

OK,, I have to laugh,, I made the little Tree one for WSQ,, many years ago, and I think I still have that pattern...
OK,, count me in.. 6 x12 it is,,,
I don't have a mini quilt stand.. but I can try to re-create one or peruse the Thrift for something..
now we just gotta get Quiltee and Stitchinwitch others in on this..
