    My SIL told me of a woman who made her kitchen curtains out of yo yos. She said they were the prettiest curtains she had ever seen. I make a few yo yos a week but I will probably be dead long before I get enough to make a quilt.LOL

    love your quilt. my king size quilt doesn't have a backing on it. but the throws that I'll be make will have a backing on them. I don't have a quilt frame. I was hopeing that I could make one from PVC pipes.

    Thanks for looking and commenting on my yo-yo quilt. It was a fun quilt to make and it has a lot of special memories for me.

    It's so nice to see these old topics come up again after a few years. This post is 4 years old. I often wonder if anyone, besides me, goes back to look at the older pictures. They are so many beautiful quilts here to not go back and re-look!

    Have a great day!
    Yvonne

    I love it and am really glad this old post came back up!! I joined an online 'yo-yo along' a few months ago but only have about 300 of the 1000 I need, but your post has given me new incentive to get back at it. If you already have the circles cut out it makes a great travel project and is quite the conversation starter I have found!

    Phew you made me exhausted just looking at it. What incredible work you did. I have made yo-yo's and put a few on quilts I made for my niece's but just 28 on each quilt
    as an accent. You have a priceless quilt.

    Love these yo-yo stories. What wonderful memories each of you have created while creating them and making the finished items.

    Miss Boo...I love the stuffed yo-yo story. I was trying to picture this garland, but when you said "stuffed" I pictured it and got a good morning chuckle.

    Keep all these good stories coming.

    This is precious and still so bright . It certainly does not look 45 years old. Love it!
