How many Yo-Yos make a quilt? – Design Wall Monday


Oops!  I’ve done it again!  My photographer daughter, Stephanie, discovered a nice vintage Yo-Yo coverlet at a consignment shop with a pretty hefty price tag recently.  While vintage is great, it’s a lot spend for photo props.  So how about making one?  Sure!!  I love starting projects!

After testing the Clover Yo-Yo maker, I have to say I’m hooked!  They are fun and easy to make and every one is perfect!  Even a non sewer could make these and Stephanie’s planning to start making them, too.

I’m using the extra large yo-yo maker that needs a 5.5″ square of fabric.  OF COURSE, I’ve just cut about everything I own into 5″, 2.5″ and 2″ squares!  So, now I’m perusing my fabric again looking for larger pieces.  Fortunately, for making Yo-Yos, you do not need the best fabric, so I’m digging out some of my older fabric from my sewing and crafting days.  Just add color!  I’m a little scared to figure out how many we’ll need to make, 625 for a lap size?

Have you made a Yo-Yo coverlet?  Any tips or advice?  I’d love to hear from you.  If you have pictures, send them to linda @  (remove spaces) and I’ll post them.

Check out Stephanie’s photography here!

Thanks for looking and check out other Design Wall Monday projects at Patchwork Times.  🙂 Linda

  1. Well I have plenty of Yo Yos and do need to make something with them……I saw a beautiful premade white quilt from Target that a quilter had sewn her yo yo’s to. It was adorable.
    Wonder if it would come up if you googled yo yo quilts.

    Happy Sewing, it is a great take along project
