Yo Yo Sampler
Yo Yo Rainbow is here- and just in time for Rainbow season!
This embroidery sampler, designed by Rebecca Ringquist in her Portland, Oregon studio, features five rows of color.
It's potentially our easiest sampler yet- the example shown uses just two stitches- back stitch and running stitch. However, like all of our designs, you can customize this one with your own stitches and colors. Yo Yo Rainbow is the third design in our samplers inspired by traditional American quilt
Please note: This is a printed embroidery sampler; it arrives ready to hoop and stitch yourself.
The sampler arrives preprinted on cotton quilting fabric, ready to stitch and includes basic instructions. You provide your own threads, needles, and hoop.
What size is it?
The Color Wheel measures approximately 9" x 11"

How should I back my sampler?
For best results, I recommend backing this fabric with a second piece of fabric (cotton or linen) before placing your fabric in the hoop. You'll get the flattest,
most even stitches this way. Check out my how to for this step on creativebug or IGTV (@dropcloth)
What size hoops should I use? I like a size 6- but use whatever you hoop you have on hand.
