Round Robin Quilts

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

This is my Round Robin quilt which I posted on an earlier blog

Joan Terry's quilt has an Amish look that was carried out through the Round Robin.

This Round Robin quilt is owned by Glenda McNeil

This is one of the five Round Robin quilts that was produced by the five members of Quilt Camp 2008. It belongs to Barbara Oliver.

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.
