Yo-Yo quilt and Double Wedding Ring quilt updates

I've been working on the yo-yo quilt-mainly sewing "blocks" of 5 rows by 5 rows. It seems to make the whole thing seem more manageable! :) This pile contains 9 blocks. I've also been working on the DWR-I got it on the frame and I've started hand quilting! Yeah! I'm 1/4" outline quilting the ring wedges and I think it looks nice. (the top row looks like its quilted 1/2" inch because it is-I've left room for the binding :) and I'm very proud of myself that I remembered to do that!

I'm really happy with the way the design is looking too...wish it was a nicer day and I could get a better picture. I know I shouldn't complain but it has been raining for days!

Look at all those yo-yos! What a good idea to make blocks. You know I am jealous over your DWR quilt--it is gorgeous. First of the new year I have to get in a quilting club. I know I could be more productive if I had others to help me.

Yay! for yo yos. I have not ever made any but maybe next year.
Your hand quilting is fabulous.

Both of your quilts are moving right along, aren't they. They're both really pretty so far. Can't wait to see the end results!

Yipppee! I can do something you can do ! I can make yo-yo's ! Yes, I know... but still, I've been working on yo yo's for a year and I keep counting and counting.... I know precisely how many I will need and then it's on to the fun!
But yours are prettier...
