    You'd have to align them dead center or they'll look "off" and be a distraction, IMO.

    Beautiful quilt-my vote would be without-it is stunning with its "traditionalism" and lovely quilting-doesn't need the extra. Just my opinion

    I woldn't add them. Although pretty yoyos, they sort of look like you just stuck something in the space. Let the beautiful quilt stand along. It will!

    Very beautiful quilt! But I do agree that without the yoyos the quilt is great! The yoyos are cute but a bit distracting on this particular quilt.

    Being a yo-yo fan, love the placement of these on the quilt! Adds some character! :-)

    I like it without the yoyo's. I think they take away from the beautiful fans and the quilting. They look a little like an afterthought. Love your quilt, btw.

    Gorgeous quilt and I vote no yo-yo's. Takes away from the quilt itself.

    Keep it tradition without the yoyos. It is a beautiful quilt!
