This wildly expressive antique American quilt features a dazzling collection of boldly patterned, brightly colored yo-yo roundels that have a modern presence.
American Quilt, Origin: America – Painstakingly crafted from a colorful assortment of scrappy floral prints and bold patterns, this antique American yo-yo quilt is a graphic work of art that has undeniable modern charm. Vivid fuchsias, soft pinks, golden-yellows, purples and cool tones are expertly juxtaposed against a warm mustard-colored ground that peeks between the yo-yo roundels. Random patterns and color sequences emerge from the beautifully intermingled yo-yos creating vertical and lateral movement that carries the eye across the composition and gives the abstract design a contemporary visage. In true patchwork fashion, coordinating animal prints, checkerboard roundels and calico florals point to similar yo-yos that were cut from the same cloth and expertly distributed across the composition. The variety and strong colors of the coordinating prints create a dazzling visual effect that embodies all the traits of this American handcraft.
