Yo Yo Quilts Blankets

My mom always made yo yo quilts when I was young . And she  makes them now that I am older too. The pre-cut circles can easily be carried in a woman's  purse to later  sew into yo yo shapes wherever she might be.  Often as a teenager, I would find several of my missing shirts in my mom's quilts as yo yo circles. 

Yo yo quilts were a popular style of quilt making in the 1920's and 40's. And today, yo you popularity has grown. They are even used  in jewelry, purses, pillows, and belts.
