Yo-Yo Mama Show and Tell...

Yesterday was our Yo-Yo Mama's 1930's quilt group day at Material Girls....so I'm bringing you some of the show and tell.

This is my quilt that I brought to show...It's my secret project that I made from our 2 1/2" square exchange that we just finished up... I posted about here.
The pattern for this quilt came from a picture in an old magazine...it's very simple as you can see.


Look how different this quilt looks when viewed with the blocks on point...


Or on a straight setting.
I just have to add a border and get it quilted....then I will use it for a table topper in my kitchen.

The following are a few of the blocks from our new exchange we are doing this year...






This is my good friend Judy striking a pose for the camera....lol...she cracks me up!
As you can see...we always have a great time together:)




These are just a few of the blocks I will be showing throughout the year...that's how long this fun block exchange will go.

Pat made an adorable ipod cozy out of scraps...


Way cute bag from one of my favorite Heather Bailey fabrics...I used this print for one of my crochet edge pillwcases...check it out here.

And a Valentine's apron made by Becky....love it!
I sure hope you enjoyed my little show and tell...and I also hope you have a quilt-y kind of day!


Pin It!

LOVE your thirtys quilt - absolutely beautiful !

Do you know the name of the bag pattern that your friend used with her HB prints ? I have very bad shoulders and that looks awesome to carry - style of the handle makes all the difference. Any help with pattern name would really be appreciated

you have a fun group of friends there !

I Love your quilt Lori -- that's a great pattern. Your block exchange sounds like so much fun. I love that cute little blue and red pinwheel too!

Colleen said...

I love the quilt you made and am actually making one just like it. I saw my friends and asked her where she got the pattern. It is from a book called "Open a Can of Worms" published in 2000. It is still available on Amazon. There are also several other ways to place the blocks to get a different pattern.

Great projects. It looks like a great group. I love your scrappy squares quilt!

P.S. I finished all of the applique on my Blessings block. Just need to do the embroidery, but realized that I didn't mark the lines on the applique pieces before hand so now I'm going to have to work that out. Don't know where I was during that part of the instruction :) Ooops!

Hope you're doing well!!

notes of sincerity said...

Good Morning Lori. :o)
I am seriously considering this pattern that you created, for your Sew Cherry fabric that I purchased and I was wondering if you would not mind sharing the amount of 2 1/2" squares as well as white blocks that you used.
Love love love your new fabric and can not wait to create something lovely with it!!!!
Sincerely, Trish
