>Remember that yoyo quilt


yoyos sewn to store bought quilt

I while back I posted about a quilt a lady showed when teaching a class at the local quilt guild fair, her daughters quilt is shown above.  I wasn’t very excited about the class but the work shown was lovely as you can see from the quilt shown above.

Well the other day I found two of those store bought quilts (on clearance)  sort of like the one pictured  above that the teacher’s daughter did, but a tad bit different.  Mine don’t have a scalloped edge and are not white on white.  Mine are white on one side and colored on the other  and the quilting is colored.  One is bright orange and one is medium blue.  As for the colored seam binging well that is something the teacher’s daughter added.

So I am thinking I will make two of these one brightly colored and one more subdued.  I think the white yoyos the girls have been making with the big blue yoyo tool might be just the ticket for the subdued one, using the blue quilt.  I will probably make a little tutorial to go with this so other people can do it too.  The bright one I may add a quilt too it that I was making a while back that I want a little stronger and a little bigger.  the nice thing about doing this type of thing is it makes the yoyo quilt stronger and it also makes it a warm quilt not just a summer coverlet on a guest bed.
