5. Lay the right side (top side) of the zipper (does a zipper have a top side?) on the left of the fabric along the edge. Sew into place along the zipper teeth. I didn't use a zipper foot, I used my wide zig-zag foot. Sew the other side of the zipper to the right side of the square.

Here is a sample of the amazing rhymes about the colors.
WHAT IS GREEN?
Green is the grass and the leaves of trees. Green is the smell of a country breeze.
WHAT IS RED?
Red is a lipstick, red is a shout, red is a signal that says: "Watch out!" Red is a great big Rubber ball, Red is the giant-est color of all.
WHAT IS PINK?
If you stand in an orchard in the middle of Spring and you don't make a sound you can hear pink sing, a darling, whispery song of a thing. Pink is the beautiful little sister to red; my teacher said, and a ribbon girls tie round their head.
WHAT IS WHITE?
White is a dove and lily of the valley and a puddle of milk spilled in the alley----a ship's sail,a kite's tail, a wedding veil. Hailstones and Halibut bones and some people's Telephones.
If you like ryhme and colors, you will LOVE this book. Go check it out!

I love the fabric for this table cloth....I got it in California last year. I wish I had paid attention to whose line it was. It is VERY cheerful! One of my favorites!
This is Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit. I got them two years ago at a craft fair. I loved the glitter....you all know me and glitter!
I keep them out all year round in my guest bedroom. They make me sooooooo HAPPY!

Lazy Girl Deisigns has a great tutorial on how to use the Clover Yo-Yo Maker.
I have also heard yo-yo referred to as puffs and even Marguerites. This technique dates back to before the Victorian era but was really popular from 1925 through the 1950's. They are never quilted, just tacked together. Some wonderful patterns and designs can be achieved using different colors. Ladies would place a sheet or solid color light summer on the bed and lay the yo-yo quilt on top. The solid backing would shine through giving a lacy effect. Newspapers and ladies magazines would offer ideas for layouts. I have seen them made in many colors but pastels are prominent. I also have some using gingham.
