Clover YoYo Maker

I was surfing UTube and came across many videos on how to use the Clover YoYo maker. I realized that I had bought the YoYo makers at Tuesday Morning. The videos called for 51/2 inch squares. I had bought a package of 5" squares on our vacation to New Hampshire. I sewed most of the squares into 9 patches, but I wasn't real happy with the color combinations. I tried the 5" squares in the extra large YoYo maker and they worked! So I took apart the 9 patch blocks and sewed all 70 squares into beautiful YoYos in two days in front of the TV. I put them in the jar on the coffee table and they look pretty in there. Perhaps I'll figure out something else to do with them someday.

  1. I made some and intend to sew them together to put on top of a pillow for my daughter, who is a research doctor, they are heart shaped. She is in cardiology. Thought that would be appropriate. I have seen them put on quilts as flowers in a flower pot that was cute.
