May 20, 2011: I’ve always wanted to make a yo-yo quilt, but it seemed overwhelming. I decide to start by making a few yo-yos and then maybe a small project like a pillow.

July 6, 2011: I’m enjoying the process and have made several more. But then the project gets put aside to work on UFOs and Christmas presents.

April 4, 2013: I quickly knock out the rest of the 36 yo-yos needed for the pillow and lay them out. Next I start sewing them together and then to the pillow foundation fabric.

April 21, 2013: The pillow front is done! All yo-yos are on the pillow along with the decorative ric-rac border.

May 20, 2013: I put an envelope closure on the pillow and bind the edges and the Yo-Yo & Ric-Rac Pillow is finished!
