Tell your son thanks for his service..My husband, Dad and father-in law were in the military. Have a safe trip and enjoy your time with your son.. Could I copy your idea and make my own quilt. If so, what size yo yos did you use?

thank you so much for your positive comments.. i have been doing yo yo projects at least 20 years and whenever i show them to someone i always feel self consious even though i have had only positive feedback..of course you can copy it i would feel flattered this is actually a wall hanging there are loops at top to hang it..this one i used an old cd disc to cut the circles, however,previously i made a flag for a friend and used the top of a spray can for the size.. personally i like the smaller size better ( the spray can top) whatever size circle u cut when you gather it it then becomes half the size you started with. i have made full yo yo quilts with both small and large yo yos and my personal preference is either a 3 or 4 inch circle to start.. having so many military people in your family i think u will busy a long time once you start

I be happy to share my pics. Wooden stars I didn't catch that on the photo. Great idea...I like to add objects to my quilt or wall hanging. I think it adds interest. Hope to complete one before Christmas.
