I was recently asked by the owner if I would consider offering this vintage yoyo quilt for sale. Although I don’t usually sell quilts on consignment, vintage yoyo’s in good condition are hard to find these days, so I was more than willing to give it a try.
Yoyo quilts can be found arranged completely randomly and also can be found arranged in patterns similar to some of the simpler, but beloved patterns, such as this 25 patch.
In my opinion, the patterned ones are more appealing, but the random ones are sweet too.
The fabrics used to make these yoyos appear to be drawn from prints popular during the 30’s and 40’s and are typical of what might be found in any thrifty homemaker’s scrap bag. The yellow is a lovely sunshine yellow setting off the slightly darker prints. This was a great take along sewing project – could be done listening to the radio in the evening, visiting on the front porch with friends or while waiting in the doctor’s office. Nothing much has changed, has it?
At 53 by 86 inches, this one is sized to fit the top of a double or queen sized mattress perfectly. It would be best displayed with a solid coloured cotton bedspread underneath which includes a full skirt. Perhaps in one of the lovely strong pastels so popular in the 30’s and 40’s – jade or nile green, bubblegum pink, lilac or sky blue are all possibilities.
This quilt is clean, crisp and in excellent condition. No tears or breaks, and no yoyo’s coming ungathered. It’s ready for display in your romantic or cottage style home!
