Yo-Yo Quilt

I have made more than 300 yo-yo's since the end of July. In doing so I have used up most of my smaller stash of fabric. I have them in purple, pinks, and blues. To make my first quilt, I have chose to work in the pinks. I pinned together 16 of 9 yo-yo sets adding up to 144. I now realize that i need 3 times that to make a large quilt. So now I have to decide on my next fabrics to purchase because you know I'll never find the exact fabrics I had. I think I will work around the 9 blocks with tone-on-tone of pinks and creams. Any way here is my first picture. Those corner yo-yo's are really pink and the tiny flowers in the between them are pink too.

Easy make a boarder of rows of yoyos that are bands of color like one pink one blue one purple then that will = the same width of one of your blocks and then you can add a differnt color easily to the outside blocks as it will look planed and not an accident

Thank you Janet, I saw a picture of an Irish Chain Quilt and I think that if I add light colored yo-yos it will beautiful.
