ANTIQUE YO YO QUILT

This is actually not a very good picture of this quilt against the pink walls.



For the life of me I couldn't think of the technique for this quilt....a senior moment I guess.  I had to ask a friend, Gene, what they were and when he told me I had to slap my face....how silly of me.




                                                                   here are some close ups...



I just love this quilt.


It was given to me by a sweet friend in Lampasas (passed away about two years ago).  I told her to give it to her daughters but she said they would not appreciate it like I would.


It hung in my house in Lampasas and has since been folded in my closet and each time I saw it I would say...one day I am going to hang you back up.

Today was the day!!!!  In my pink room...yes...pink.  I have five sons and have never had a girly room....now I do and when they visit...I hear no complaints.

Vintage quilts are so nice to have around. I know how much work and time go into one of those quilts. I finally gave up on my yo-yo quilt.

I love the old yo yo quilts. We must be on the same path as my last post was also of a yo yo quilt. Senior moments are allowed!!
