Yo-Yo Quilt Progress


Instead of picking a big project to work on to start off the year, I have decided to just move a few projects forward. Thanks again to Wendy from The Constant Quilter for the beautiful 30's fabric.

This week, I have been making more yo-yos. I laid them out to see if they were too busy and needed a constant fabric, either for the squares, or for the cornerstone yo-yos. Another option is to add a smaller squares to replace the four cornerstone yo-yos. What do you think?


Here's a blurry pictures without the flash so you can see the colors better. I am using pink, blue, green, yellow, and cream. The fabric in the squares have bigger patterns that look better in a large setting, and/or patterns I like better.

Oh my word! I am working on the same thing thanks to your inspirational photos of the antique one last winter. I have made over 800 yo-yos so far and am considering using a rectangle instead of a square. Mine will all be scrappy so I will be really curious if you decide to go with a constant for the squares. I actually think it would look great with plain colors or even white for the squares and lots of color for the yo-yos. So many choices! I love what you have done!

This quilt is going to be a beauty! Love all those little yo yos dancing around the squares...such fun. As for being 'too busy"....is there such a thing? =)

Doesn't look too busy to me. Nice soft pastels.

Yo Yos add so much to any hand project. You have made so many!

I like the big blocks with the border of yo yo's. Doesn't look busy at all.
