Quilt Pays Off

Robert (pictured) and Mary Higginbotham won this quilt made of 1,080 yo-yos at the Mogollon Health Alliance craft fair.

The quilt raised more than $1,000 when it was raffled at the end of the fair.

The yo-yo quilt was made over a period of six months by 13 women in MHA's arts and crafts group as a fund-raising project.

"The Pink Ladies want to thank the entire community for its generous support," said Mary Ellen Fuller, administrative assistant for MHA.

Yo-yo quilts originated in the Depression Era out of scraps because fabric was a scare resource.
