No, there are not 10,000 yoyos in this quilt–there are only 1,470, but this being my sixth completed yoyo coverlet that I have made in the past five years, my lifetime total of yoyos that I have made is over 10,000 now.
This one is a study in purples and reds. I am SO glad to have this one done. I started it while Nathan and I were dating. It stayed half-finished in the closet for a couple of years until I discovered it during morning sickness. I decided I HAD to finish it before the baby came or there was a 0% chance it was ever going to be finished which if you’ve ever made a quilt entirely by hand you will appreciate that this would have been a crying shame. I love it, especially now that it’s done. It just looks like my friend.
