Day of the Dead quilt- YoYo's
Our YoYo group, as we call our Circle has 8 members. We started out as the YaYa's, but Polly's European husband, kept calling us the YoYo's and it sort of stuck.. We are a bit yoyo, and on occasion have made yoyo's. We traveled one year to the Chico YoYo festival, and we have our special yoyo's in our carry bags. Oh, I did not mention that that year the Chico Quilt Show was the same week-end. We are not the traditional group of quilters.. We like to challenge our selves with art Quilts and techniques. I have been wanting to do a Day of the Dead Quilt for a long time, and this seemed like the right time.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
