I have been needing to do a bit of repair on a quilt I finished years ago and I was finally motivated to get it done thanks to Val. Every Tuesday over at Val's Quilting Studio, you can share posts based on a pre-determined theme - this week is Yo Yo Quilts so the timing to get these repairs done was perfect.
I made this quilt a little over 10 years ago. When my grandmother passed, I found a few bags of fabric scraps in her belongings and decided to use some of them in a yo yo quilt. I decided to use different colors to create a pattern. And I really love the points around the outside border.
The quilt hangs over the foot board of my lodge pole pine bed as it is a bit delicate. About every two years, I need to fix a few of the yo yos or restitch a few of the connecting stitches. I have always loved seeing vintage yo yo quilts and really wanted one of my own. I do love seeing it every day but if asked to make another one, I am sure I can come up with a number of excuses as to why that is not happening!
I hope all of you in the US have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with friends, family and good food.
And if you are a Black Friday shopper and love good deals, I should let you know about some great ones on Craftsy. They have all of their classes on sale. And right now I am not sure you can beat their pricing on Kona Solids and Aurifil threads. This is a great time to load up on those necessary basics!
I myself am picking up a few more quilt kits and quilt backs at ridiculously low prices!
