Yo Yo Easter Egg

This pink Easter egg is made from heart-shaped yo-yos. I originally saw one that was on the site of All People Quilt. I used white glass headed pins and pink beads to attach the yo-yos to a styrofoam base.The original picture used buttons and pins. It really is cute. It took about 50 yo-yos to cover a medium-sized egg.

ABC Quilt

This quilt is also from The Stitch Connection and is called ABC Redwork Quilt. The Overbrook Quilt Connection has many of The Stitch Connection's patterns. The unique feature of these patterns is that they are available in both hand embroidery and machine embroidery. I do not like to "touch the needle" so I make these quilts using machine embroidery.
Yesterday was my class with the quilt titled Holiday Redwork. There were four ladies who were part of the class. We learned so much from each other and had a great time. The class has three sessions, so we are anxious to get together again.

Holiday Redwork

This is the quilt that I am working on. It is from The Stitch Connection. I am teaching this as a class at the Overbrook quilt shop. I made this quilt a couple of years ago and decided I should make it again to refresh my memory about how it constructed. The redwork is machine embroidery and is very quick. I am considering making a couple of these as Christmas gifts.
