Project Robin’s Hope

I am starting up a project that I hope many of you will join me in fulfilling.

Purpose of the project: To provide a last wish of a very dear and generous lady.

Story behind the project:

Robin is a mother of 4 adult children all serving in the armed forces. What I am proposing is that we help Robin fulfill a last wish. Robin is a member of my local guild she is also one of the chair members for our charity quilt program for the guild. Our guild is a small guild and lacks the numbers to help Robin fulfill her last wish. So I am reaching out to the quilting world to help me to help her to fulfill this wish. Last year I meet Robin at a quilt retreat she was losing her voice her doctor did not know why. He sent her to a specialist and they ran some test and found a tumor. The tumor was cancer and a very rare form that doesn’t respond to any known treatments. This year they used radiation to help shrink the tumor. At one point the tumor had gotten big enough to collapse one of her lungs. The tumor makes it hard for her to speak above a whisper. This week she was told that the tumor has again started to grow back and at this rate come this time next year she will no longer be able to breath. Robin approached our guild board with a hope to get the guild to help make a quilt for each member of her daughters unit which will be deploying outside the US to a war zone next year sometime after February. Our guild is a very small guild and the board members did not feel that our group could get that many quilts done so the board voted to make a pillow case for each member. In my heart I was prompted by God to help Robin fulfill the wish of a quilt for each member of her daughters unit. I know with the help of God and other quilters that this wish is obtainable.

Robin, I just mailed off two boxes to you this afternoon. They are scheduled to be delivered to you on Thursday! For those of you yet to send your quilts, the US post office is the way to go. For one box with 2 quilts in it the total was $12.50 and the heavier (by far) was only $18 and change.  So much less than using the flat rate boxes, UPS or Fed-ex. Had I sent them regular post it would have saved another $5. Just some general info I wanted to pass along. Robin, I will watch the tracking online to keep tabs on the boxes. Post a note when you get them, please.

Cindy,  they are perfect...I love them!  Please make sure you mail them to me, ok?  Thanks again soooooo much!!!

The last two of mine are complete. It has been an honor and pleasure to be a part of this project. I pray that each of the recipients will feel the love that went into each stitch of the quilts. May they be a warm hug from home and a reminder that we care about them all.

Wow!  What a nice slide show, Robin.  I'm impressed, not only with the slide show, but with all the quilts and time it took for all of them to be made.  I think quilters are the most thoughtful and generous people, and I'm glad to be one of them!  Cindy, I'll be in touch so we can meet up for lunch and I can get your quilts.

Mine are finished and labeled. Will be on their way as soon as I get them to Paula.

My 2 quilts are quilted - I just need to put on the binding and ship them to you. 

Comment by Pam/NY on January 26, 2015 at 7:15pm

Just saw the you tube...excellent job. My hubby and I were amazed at all the patterns and love involved in this project! We should all be very proud!

I just put together a quick slideshow of the finished quilts we have received as of this past weekend.  I'm having trouble getting the link to work, so if you just go to youtube.com and search for Robin's hope quilts, the slideshow should come right up...let me know if you can view it...I will update it with the remainder of the quilts the end of February...

Last two tops are pieced and ready to load on my quilting machine. Won't be long now until I will be sewing down the bindings.
