    I'm just sick about what I think I did last week. I put a quilt top and backing (just needed batting!) in a plastic bag in my van to drop off at the quilter. Didn't end up going, and left bag in the van for return trip. Guess what? I can't find the bag with the top and back and I think I may have tossed it! I feel so sick! :( Not just at the money I've lost, but at the loss of a gift for my brother. I keep praying it will turn up. Has anyone else done anything like this? I will NEVER EVER EVER put a quilt in a plastic bag from a discount store! I feel like I left a kid at the mall. Thanks for letting me vent!

    I hope it turns up, but I have to say I've done things like that. :(

    Ohhh, I feel so badly for you! Did you check your garage?
    I'm so sorry :( Don't beat yourself up though- it was an innocent mistake.

    So sorry. I hope you find your quilt top.

    Talk about stupid. I once threw my purseinto a huge dumpster. I didn't find out until many days later that I could have called the number on the dumpster and gotten it back. I had to cancel credit cards, get a new driver's license, and ATM card. What a mess. Boy did I feel dumb.

    A gentleman in our area tells a horror story of someone who put their quilt in a green garbage bag...you guessed it - out in the trash it went.

    Oh dear, sorry to hear. I have done something similar very recently. My friend brought me an antique quilt someone made for her grandmother. I was to take it to my quilting class because the instructor repaired old quilts. I remember my friend leaving it on my kitchen table. That's the last I saw of it. I felt and still feel so awful. She was nice about it, but still, I feel like I let her down. Hubby and I can't remember anything else except her leaving it on the table. We speculate it got thrown out. So I do feel your pain.

    have heard this type of story so many times over the years...best to get a CLEAR bag from bedding and use that...or even a dry cleaners bag that you can put over a hanger!
