finished yo-yo mini quilt


I finished the little quilt that I showed here on Little Quilt Monday.  





I hand stitched with variegated crochet thread and used a scrappy binding to finish this little mini.


I backed this little quilt with some of my favorite Kaffe fabric.  I have a Little/mini quilt flickr group for fun and inspiration and you are welcome to add pictures of the little quilts you have made.  I also have a facebook page for mini quilts that is for the same reason : )



The yo-yos were so easy to make.  I plan to make some using Christmas fabric scraps, but I don't know for sure how I will use them.  They would probably look cute in a jar....hum....I like that idea : ) 


piece,
elizabeth

Awesome! I love how the quilting turned out! Great binding and backing, too. And, here again, I'm loving the dark background ... I need to try more dark backgrounds, because they really highlight the colors well!

This is such a neat color scheme for a yoyo quilt! Love the hand quilting too, I'm biased when it comes to hand quilting compared to machine quilting...
