YoYo Sampler Blocks


A is for apple

B is for bicycle

C is for cheery cherries

D is for Dresdan plate

E is for Every colour of the rainbow


F is for flower

and more flowers...


G is for Geometric 



I'm not really doing the whole alphabet, gosh I wouldn't know what to do for Q... 


I've just been having fun seeing what blocks I can come up with incorporating YoYos.



If you've made it this far looking at all these photos then you deserve a drink, how about a nice orange juice...

 I'll be back to show off more blocks soon!

This is pure genius Rachael! You would have no trouble doing the whole alphabet, I 'm sure! Your choice of colour is stunning too!

Anorina (Samelias Mum) said...

Q is for Quilt... Or quirky :) Yes I would love to see the alphabet ;-)

Your yo yo's are lovely.

Melody said...

You are the cleverest quilter ever. Fabulous and inspiring. Do the whole alphabet and sell the pattern - that would be brilliant-I'd be your first customer.

Leanne said...

OMG Rachael !!! They are fantastic. I love them. They made me smile from start to finish...

Shakey Stitches said...

I love your yoyo blocks. My favorites are the bike and the orange juice. I think you should do the whole alperbet or make just enough to spell a word. Hopefully something cheaky so only clever people will be able to work out the joke.

Karen said...

These look great. What fun! I do like the apple and the bicycle. It looks like a quilt could be growing here.
Could Q be Queen Bee?

jednoiglec said...

Absolutely gorgeous idea! I love all the letter you've done so far. It would be awesome to have whole alphabet:)

Very, very clever Rachael! hard to pick a favourite - lots of fun:)
Saw your lovely quilts at the Springwood Show today - it was all so impressive! The "Dollop of cream" was my favourite and was getting a lot of attention too.

Karen said...

GENEIOUS!!!! You are! They are fabulous blocks and your quilt will be so cool!

Karen said...

PS i think you had better be writing a pattern as you go as I am sure there will be lots wanting to make their own yo-yo quilt.

quiltsomore said...

Sujata Shah said...

Love that idea! You are so clever!
I know what you would do for Q.. A self portrait for the Yo-Yo Queen!

loads of fun! I can no longer say I don't like yoyo's.... the striped fabric ones are my fave.

Jeneta said...

Rachael! These are fabulous!!!! You should keep the rest to yourself now and write a book!
