Yo-Yo Accents--Down Under is a collection of six Australian animal appliqué designs. I decided to finish the edges of colorful towels with bright strips of fabric and then sewed the animals to the towels. Then I embellished them with fabric yo-yos and a little bit of embroidery to give them texture and whimsy. They are very fun to make!
To give you a little more inspiration, I've made a quilt to match using the animals in some of the blocks. For a long time, I've been collecting Aboriginal print fabrics because I love the bright designs and colors. The quilt blocks, sashing, and border feature over 40 different prints! You can go crazy like I did or keep your color scheme a little simpler. Batiks are a great fabric choice here as well. I've added some notes about the quilt to the website. Check in the tips section if you would like to give it a try.
