Back in the nineties, I was involved in an online book club composed of quilters who "met" in an AOL forum. We named ourselves The "Yo-Yo Sisterhood", a play on the title of a book we discussed called Divine Secrets of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood. We participated in several quilt swaps over the years, including a row-by-row challenge and a four-inch block challenge. We met in person in Chicago where we stayed in a resort for a weekend and attended a quilt show. We were interviewed and photographed for the local newspaper with our row-by-row quilts. The members of the group lived all over the country, from North Carolina to Illinois to Hawaii. We mailed our swaps to each other according to a rotation.
Our last project was a "round robin," where each participant makes the center of a quilt top, and the subsequent quilters each add a border according to prescribed rules (applique, triangles, squares, etc.)
I never got mine back...until today! As I recall, there was a problem because the top was not lying flat. The person who was to add the next row set it aside to ponder what to do...and it has been forgotten in a closet for about ten or twelve years!
Here is my beautiful quilt top, and I don't care that it may be a little wavy!
