The Yo Yo Ladies of Paducah, Kentucky

At our last Quilt Guild meeting we had as our guests, the Yo Yo Ladies of Paducah, Ky. This is a group of quilting ladies that make yo yo's and quilted items that they sell for different charities. What a great time we had, they shared some of their quilts with us and with each quilt there was a wonderful and interesting story. They have also been featured every year in a Japanese quilt magazine. One of the members showed her beautiful spider quilt, I fell in love with it and decided to give it a try. Here is the one that I made.

Well I thought I had taken a picture of the on she made but I couldn't find it. I did take some pictures of some of the quilts that they brought. Although I can't remember any of the stories that was told about the quilts. They brought so many beautiful quilts and we felt very blessed to have been able to see them. I was inspired to get to my studio and get to quilting.

This last quilt is a yo yo quilt. They said that it has 1700 exceptional yo yos, they said that they was not perfect yo yos because only God is perfect.

If you click on the photo, you will get a better idea of what a yo yo is.
