Meet the Yippies

Posted on: February 21st, 2020 by Lorna McMahon
These google eyed guys are fun to make!
My Yippies quilt is finally quilted and bound….
And will begin it’s journey across the pond come Monday.
I used solids pieced from any “full width of” that I could find in my stash.


I used 3″ squares folded into triangles for hanging tabs on the corners.



And quilted in grey both on top and in the bobbin .


Organic wavy lines using my walking foot.


I adore the saturated text prints.
Little words can say a lot.


“Yippies” finished at 18″ square.
This fun little mini quilt is going to a special friend I have made on Instagram. Her name is Alison @aash113 and you can follow her here. She has made me a mini too!!! Click here to seeeeeee!!!!!
