Col.Potter
Cairn Rescue Network's
Heart Quilt Project

Col Potter Members make Heart Quilts for members in heart rending circumstances.
Individuals make single blocks, then one of our quilters assembles and does the quilting.
It's a great way for all of us to give that member a hug.

  Feb 2009- Joellyn Key was a perfectly healthy woman until a trip out of the country in November of last year. Upon her return, she got sick, was treated with antibiotics, but didn't really get well. In January, she was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre' Syndrome - We decided to make her a quilt to let her know she is in our hearts and to give her a hug.

Dec 2008 - Mary Lou Shobe was walking Toto and was hit by a hit and run driver and needed to be airlifted to the hospital. She was hurt very badly. Toto had his pelvis broken but will be ok. We wanted to make her a quilt to help her recovery, but sadly she died of her injuries. We will be sending her quilt and a matching one for Toto to her family.

Danielle Rackstraw is one of the founders of CPCRN and she's had a rough few years. We decided to make her a quilt to thank her for all she's done for CPCRN and partly because we wanted to surprise her with our thanks. We called it the 'Dont Tell Danielle' quilt and she was shocked when we gave it to her.

Carol Loeb is one of the founders of Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network. Carol was recently diagnosed with endometrial adenocarcinoma and will need to undergo chemo to get her well again. As her friends, we felt that a heart quilt could help her feel our hugs.
