    A while back Joanie posted a picture of this quilt she quilted for me, here it is with the yo-yo's do you think with or without looks better???
    Thank you.

    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.

    The eye is drawn to the yo yos & detracts from the beautiful work of your plates - I'd opt not to use them.

    It's a beautiful quilt but I think I would do without the yoyos. Just my opinion. :-)

    I think without. It detracts from the beautiful job you did on the Dresden corners. I love it.

    I am an avid embellisher, but I think the Suffolk puffs (yoyos) detract from the elegance of the Dresden design.

    The quilt is beautiful, I'd say without.

    I have seen other DPquilts with a bullseye pieced at the intersections of the plate blocks and they add to the quilt IMO. I think the yo-yos would work if their center is centered over the intersection of the 4 blocks and that would not be very hard to do.
