Hello to all who responded to my plea about yo yo quilts.  Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner but I have been up to my neck with caretaking my husband who recently had another heart attack and elderly mother.

The person who wanted me to do the quilt hasn't gotten back to me.  Guess that will be ok for me now!!


Sincerely, Ruth
