Robin's HOPE

Here's my HOPE quilt. This is a wonderful challenge. Thanks for inviting me!
(Victoria from bumble beans...)
Mine was inspired by my husbands brother, Robin, who passed away this past May from cancer... Beatrice, my daughter, in January drew this "robin" (below) and we made it into a soft lovey for him as a gift.

Although we have no one in our family with Alzheimer's, Robin did a lot of Humanitarian work of all sorts to help many people, so with the help of my daughter, we honor him with this "Hope" quilt.

***Just need to add the label, and the hang-y thing and I can send it off***

I'm sorry to hear about your brother-in-law. What a very sweet quilt though and I love how it has both hope and a bird. you did a marvelous job. Is that embroidery around the letters? I'm trying to figure out how you got them to pop like that.
