Yo, YO! It's Fat Quarterly Issue 11

The Fat Quarterly Holiday Edition is out! Have you got your copy of Issue 11? It's loaded with stocking patterns, a pretty tree skirt, several awesome Christmas quilts and fun holiday home dec featuring Monica's Winterkist fabric!

Yo-Yo: Its Winterkist!

I designed a fun yo-yo pillow with Winterkist on a soft grey chambray background. My inspiration came straight from the round raindrops and snowflakes and rain bubbles in several of the prints. I had to sneak in a few prints from my stash to round out the yo-yo grid.

Yo-Yo: Its Winterkist!

There's even a sweet little Gnoma hiding on the back.

Yo-Yo: Its Winterkist!

Want to make your own fabulous Yo-Yo: Its Winterkist! pillow? You'll need to pick up Issue 11 here (for the crazy low price of 8 bucks, I might add!) and then check out the Winterkist selection here or here. Have fun!

Very cute indeed! I think I have some of those yoyo maker thingies somewhere, maybe it's time for a little good old fashioned hand work.

Super cute! Love the hidden gnome :)

I'm beginning to think both you and Amy are robots with these things you keep churning out.

SWEET pillow Krista! Congrats on another published pattern too.
Love the little gnome but the trim detail on the button closure really takes this pillow into the wow realm, you do such lovely work!

I saw this one this morning as I was reading my FQ. I love it. I know how to make yo yos and was so pleased to see them. It is a lovely pattern and so nice to see my friends being featured.

This is such a cute pillow. My first thought when I saw it in FQ was that the title should have been "yo yo yo". :)

It's SO much fun, your pillow. I've always wanted to try yo-yos. A pillow would be a great place to start I think!
