Isn't this pillow a beauty? This was made by a lady I go to church with by the name of Leanna Smith. I think I surprised her with my enthusiasm over her talent! The flag pillow has 480 yo-yos, most of them at one inch. The little white 'stars' are even smaller!
I didn't take a photo of the back, but it is done in all white yo-yos. I told her my handwork is so slow, I would've been lucky to do the front, and use a solid cloth on the back, *vbg*!
She said she doesn't do quilting, "I couldn't." She likes to do her hand sewing in the evenings while she watches a little t.v.
I asked if she had done any other sewing, she told me she's made 17 queen size yo-yo coverlets-!!! Wouldn't we like to see those? I want to introduce her to English paper-piecing hexagons...what do you think?
I baked three "Pumpkin Pie Cakes" with my students on Thursday, for our Pilgrim Feast Celebration Friday, so there is not a lot of my own sewing to share this week. Thank you for letting me spotlight Leanna's work on Sew and Tell Friday!
