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!

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

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

    Your yo yo's are lovely.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?
