Found this at an estate sale. Great find!
The shoebox on the lower left contains all the remaining yo-yos cut out and waiting to be finished. The box on the top right contains 6 more completed blocks. There was even a sketch of the completed quilt by the deceased.

How neat! Someone put in a lot of hours in this one. Is this what's used in the summertime for a coverlet on a bed?

That is great. I love to make yo-yo's but can't stand piecing them together.

Yes, I think coverlets were exactly what they used them for. I've seen a really cute patriotic overshirt made out of them. It was gorgeous.

What a great find, I love it. I made some for nursing home patients to use to cover their laps while sitting in a wheelchair. I like to make them while traveling in the car. They require little concentration, are fairly quick to do and can be put down with out loosing your place.

Very pretty - looks like she planned a red, or pink in each corner of the "block".

A great find, and kind of touching to think that the quilt is going to be completed in spite of its original maker being unable to do it.
