In a Quilter's ABC, Y is for Yoyos.Yoyos are made by taking a circle of fabric, running a line of stitching around it near the edge, and gathering them up. They can be sewn together at the edges like this to make a coverlet, or can be used individually as an embellishment or design element.
Yoyos are not something that I often do, and I would definitely not make a quilt completely made of Yoyos such as the one above that I photographed at the Central Washington State Fair last September.
But you didn't think I could find a quilting Y, did you? LOL
I had the privilege of introducing the Mr. Linky for the Letter Y of the third round of ABC Wednesday.
I joined the ABC crowd with the beginning of round 2 and I have enjoyed visiting with everyone over that time. Round 3 is coming close to its natural closing. I have been pondering a theme for another round. What about you?

ABC Wednesday concept and
