Robyn has created this design using a beautiful palette of dusky pinks and yellows, with pops of teal and red to produce a shimmering coverlet of multi faceted diamonds. Constructed entirely by hand, this yoyo coverlet pays homage to a much loved traditional quilt technique – thoughtfully modernised through its clever lay out of contrasting Liberty prints!
With minimal equipment required, yoyos are perfect portable project to keep in your handbag to work on while you are out and about! No batting or quilting is required – these clever little puffs of Liberty goodness do all the work themselves. Constructing yoyos is a fun and interesting technique – you may find they make a great conversation starter, too!
