Yo Yo Rows

Many of the quilts and projects that caught my eye at the Quilters of Trilogy show were made by Linda Orth.
We could be kindred spirits.
I especially liked Yo Yo Rows
Linda wrote that she found the pattern in the June 2011 edition of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.
A total of 409 yo yo's in all.
I love this quilt!
I'm always on the lookout for stash busters.
So different than the traditional yo yo quilt, and also a great way to use up scrap fabrics.
One Man's Tie is Another Woman's Purse
Linda also made this cute little purse out of a man's tie.
Can you see how the closure flap is at the end of the tie?
(sorry, my pictures are not the best)
I've been hunting on the Internet for a link to the pattern and found that it's a Karen Fyke Original.
The pattern isn't listed, only a purse for sale on Etsy.
Anyone else have more information?
Love the added vintage button.
Looks like a quick, easy project that would be fun to make in a class or at a guild meeting.

Beautiful yo-yos! I've always wanted to try making them... I've even gone as far as to buy the yo-yo maker.
