I made this yo-yo quilt when I was in high school. That makes it about 45 years old now. Yikes. How could something I made be that old? Anyway, My Great Auntie Pearl had started this quilt and gave it to me to finish. She had about a 1/4-1/3 of it completed. I spent every extra minute I had making yo-yos and sewing them together. My mom borrowed my grandmother's quilt frame and we attached a yellow sheet to the frame and then layed the yo-yos on top. I hand tied the center of each and everyone of those yo-yos to the sheet. Even though we did all of that I am still finding places where the stitching has broken between the yo-yos. I'm sure glad they're tied. In some places that's what's holding it all together!
