Some of you may remember my last window display was Beach themed. I'd been making Yo-Yo's for my Barnacle Quilt. Jane Brocket's book "The Gentle Art of Stitching" has the pattern. Here is the finished quilt.

- I've sewn the Yo-Yo's together so they have no backing. I'm happy with the results especially in it's new home on the back of the chair - 

- This is a photo taken on my living room floor, I've arrange the Yo-Yo's to meet in the middle. I love the effect it gives - 

- This is my favourite photo, they really do look like Limpets or Barnacles :) - 

So what ever you have planed for the Summer I hope you manage to have a bit of sewing in your life. Some one told me recently "sewing feeds your soul", I can  definitely agree with that.



  1. I love your finished Yo Yo quilt Helen! I'm still making my Yo Yo's but the bag is filling up nicely. I still haven't decided what to make with them - either a crib quilt or a cushion cover. See you soon.

    1. Hi Sarah, sorry for the late reply. Thanks, I do like the finished result, very happy. Have you decided what you're going to make with yours. Hope you're having a fantastic summer x Helen x
