I saw a post on The Purl Bee's website about making a mini yo-yo quilt.
I don't have much need for a mini quilt, but I thought it would be fun to make a pillow for my grandma's birthday.
Then I got jealous of my grandma's pillow and made one for me.
I think it will be fun to try using more than one color for this project. There are a lot of pattern possibilities.
I never even worked on my pillow at home. It was all done in the car or on family summer trips. The yo-yo's are easy to carry around and make a few at a time. I just followed the tutorial given on the Purl Bee's website. I made 64 yo-yo's and they were pretty much perfect to line up 8x8 on a 14" pillow.
