    you don't say how large the yo yo's are or the size of the bed. size finished, that is.
    So without these important details I estimate it will take about 15,636 for the bedspread....lol

    I did a google search and this is what I found:

    Twin 1452 yo-yo's

    Double 1760 yo-yo's

    Queen 2021 yo-yo's

    King 2444 yo-yo's

    Bedspread Size (with longer overhang)

    Twin 2214 yo-yo's

    Double 2592 yo-yo's

    Queen 2856 yo-yo's

    King 3360 yo-yo's

    I am sorry!! They are the "60mm" clover yo-yo's. Not sure of the size of the bed beyond double. :(
    And ouch! 15,636....Good thing I have a newborn and never sleep anyway!! ;)
    Thanks all for the info my Friends! I have a loooooooooooooooong way to go I guess. Guess I should hit Joann's for some more fat quarters to use!!

    60 mm = 2.36 inches so you can look at nance-ell's chart and decide for yourself. Since yours are a bit bigger than 2 inches you can drop a row or two.

    I'm currently making a twin size yo yo quilt, and it's been 6 months so far. LOL So fair warning it may take longer than you think. I'm in the hundreds for yo yos so far. Also attaching it to a backing as you work helps, because the weight may mess it up.

    I'm using different sizes and shapes for a fall wall hanging, and plan on somewhat duplicating the scene for a spring one. I have a couple of patterns for some Christmas tree ornaments, but a yoyo quilt didn't appeal to me. Now I know why!! Happy yoyo making to all of you!
