Not long ago, I mentioned my quilty yo-yos in all different colors. I also mentioned that I was working on some blue ones.
When I started these, I was going to use them single-file on a wide border of a small project that never took off ... so, they're sewn in little rows of 3. Now that I'm thinking about sewing tons of them together, I'm thinking I might not want them looking this organized ... but when I get a few more blue yo-yos made, I can figure out whether or not to disassemble my little rows of 3 ...
I could add these to my random yo-yo stack, but I'm liking the just-blue look. Maybe it's to balance out the uncharacteristic randomness of the other yo-yo project, but I'm thinking it'll be fun to ALSO work on a mostly-blue yo-yo quilt.
So, here's a question for my fellow-quilters: How do you like yo-yo quilts assembled?
- JUST the yo-yos sewn to each other, as a "coverlet"?
- The yo-yos stitched to something lightweight, like a sheet, to give it some stability?
- Yo-yos assembled and sewn onto a "traditional" quilt with batting?
- Something different, like yo-yos stitched onto fleece?
I realize that the possibilities are endless, so I'd love to hear from some folks who've made yo-yo quilts (or loved yo-yo quilts!), to give me ideas as I consider what to look toward in a finished product.
