Pink Saturday Yo-Yo's

I have my perfect Pink Saturday! Not only do I get to post something pink, I also get to post on something near and dear to my heart. Quilting! These are my PINK yo-yo's. They often get confused with Pennies, which are from a primitive pattern. The difference between Pennies and Yo-Yo's is the Pennies are stacked and the Yo-Yo's are 2 sided. Click on both highlights to see 2 different postings about Pennies.



I've only seen a double sized Yo-Yo quilt once....it was beautiful!




The whole thing was Yo-Yo's stitched side to side except when it came to the area of the pillows. There it was a empty square with just a few rows connecting up and down over where the pillow would be, expeensive!



I purchased these Yo-Yo's at a auction, they were in a shirt box with a note telling me how many....1,830, enough for a double size.





Since then I've added from all my scraps, I'm guessing I have about 2,500 and counting.




I LOVE the vintage pink....and the modern pinks that are shown above. I hope to soon! Have my blanket started.






For now, join Beverly for more pinks! C&G Design

So are you going to make a quilt? I'd love to see that. It looks as though someone spent SO much time. Could not even imagine.

I always admire the yo-yo quilts I see on ebay! Good luck with your project! I'm sure it will turn-out beautifully.

Great goodies you're sharing! Don't you just ♥ Pink Saturday? This is the one day that I get to totally indulge myself, get all girlie, drink tea with cream, and share time with friends on the internet. Your blog post this week was wonderful...as usual!

Went out to dinner with friends, so I'm a little late, but better late than never, right? I wish you a Sunday filled with family, l♥ve, sunshine and peace.

Oh, I love yo-yo's! I made dozens of them last summer and haven't done a thing with them, yet. I especially love the vintage fabric prints.
