2. BLOCK > New Block > EasyDraw Block.
3. Snap to Grid and Snap to Node ON.
4. Draw this:

5. Add it to the Sketchbook.

6. WORKTABLE > Work on Quilt.

10. Then right-click on the quilt on layer 1 and uncheck the outline options to see what the finished quilt would look like:

Use your normal method of construction for the yo-yo’s.

This technique is purely for a visual idea of what your yo-yo’s will look like.
