A Yoyo Play Week

I'm continuing my week of Play here at Elsie's house (still no baby as yet).  For the Project Quilting Challenge this week, since I am away from home, I knew that if I participated it would be something I could do by I decided to make something with fabric yoyos.

The challenge parameters were to make something with black and white, and only one other color.  So after visiting the local Hancock Fabrics to pick up some fabrics and a Clover Large Yoyo Maker, I made a bunch of white with black, and black with white yoyos, and chose a cute lime green for my other color.

I sewed them into flower shapes...

Then I sewed the flowers together.

The only other parameter was that the finished project could not be a square or rectangle, so I made it into a diamond shaped candle mat (that's now available in my Etsy Shop!). 

Don't forget to go and vote for this week's Project Quilting Challenge here at Kim's blog.  The entries are getting more and more artistic every week, I'm in awe! 

Enjoy the day!
