Yoyo-ing along......



Inspired by this beautiful wall hanging found on Pinterest last week I signed up to join Penny's yoyo quilt along. Penny has assured us that this will be a long slow quilt-along finishing in Octoberish which is the perfect time frame for me at the moment since I have lots of projects I want to complete over the next few months. Penny will be making a single sized coverlet but I'm not sure whether I can commit to 1008 yoyo's so I'm thinking  something like the above wall hanging might be more achievable :) 
The quilt along is due to start this week so if your keen to yo-yo along with us go check out the details here I think this would be a great way to use up those fabric scraps that get accumulated from previous quilt projects.
Edited to add: Part one is up on Penny's blog now.

I love that wall hanging. I think that's a great yoyo project to do. Can't wait to see what fabrics you chose.

What colours are you going to use? Have you decided yet?

that'll be a ton of fun! the wall-hanging is great, so colourful, and a perfect way to stash-bust.

I'm also preparing lots of yos-yos for my sew-as-you-fly project when we go through a couple of continents this summer!

I'm so excited you're joining, Catherine! I've posted the code for a button and progress bar on sewtakeahike if you're interested. I'm really loving how the colors are arranged in that inspiration quilt!
