Yo Yo Quilt

After seeing Laura's pictures of yo yo quilts and pillows I wanted to share this one made by Jim's Grandmother, it's huge and we use it as a headboard for his bed, can you imagine making this many yo yo's.

  1. Ha -- that many yoyos is mind-boggling!

    There's a funny paragraph in the Blackbird Designs book, Lovina's Pressed Flowers, about making yoyos. And the supply list is:

    *Scraps of fabric
    *Lots of patience

    So far, I have a yoyo MAT, maybe 120 or so yoyos. Someday, if I live long enough, it may reach coverlet size.

  2. Wow, that's a LOT of yo-yos. I haven't made my first one yet but keep going back to the book that Jeanne referenced thinking that I want to do one...and also the wool pieces in that book. :)

  3. *whew* that's a lot of yo-yo's. I don't know if I have any in me ... I went off on the Hexagon Trail and don't know if I'll ever get back *s*

  4. I can't imagine making that many yo yo's, but then, this coming from someone who is in the midst of making a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt!
