The Round Robin which we started after Quilt Camp 2008 was a great success. We all started with a rectangular center block. The block was mailed to the next person in the group where a border was added. After making the rounds to each of the members in the group, the quilt was returned to the owner to be finished. This applique center block was done by Connie Benwitz.
The quilts all hung in the Gallery at Lyndon State College in Vermont during Quilt Camp 2009

Getana, from the Treasures of the Gypsy Challenge 2008 is attending Lyndon State College in Vermont next week. She will be on exhibit with quilts and textiles which will be shared by the members of the group attending Quilt Camp 2009.
At camp we will each work on our own wall hanging called Hidden Wells. We will also make a quilt for a local organization in Lyndonville. It will be used as a fund raiser for H.O.P.E. ( Helping Other People Everyday). H.O.P.E. is a non-profit, all volunteer organization that provides gently used clothing and household goods to families in need, birthday baskets for home bound and elderly, book bags filled with supplies for kids whose parents can't afford them.

My quilt center was diamonds this year. Each of the other four group members added something to the quilt and now it is back home with me to finish. Isn't it a beauty?

I am sure that many of us can relate to these girls. We might belong to quilting groups, sewing groups, or weight loss group all offering an opportunity to creat a similar bond.
The snowmen pictured are from Christmas 2008. They were created from a pattern that Deanna Hogan offered to our on-line doll club. Each became a Christmas gift.
