    Oh, I hope the owner gets it back!!!! It is a lovely quilt that obviously had lots of work and love going into it!

    I hope they can find the owner too. I also think there might be a lesson here about putting more information on our labels. It's a really lovely quilt, I know someone is very sad about losing it.

    Let that serve as a lesson to always put a label on our quilts that has more information that just "Grammie". I hope it can find it's way home.

    I hope someone will post an update if they ever find the owner!

    Praying that will happen!
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    Just a suggestion They might put it on Fox News, as it would get nat. coverage. I just wouldn't put a pic. of the quilt, but just list it as one found after the tornado, did anyone have a special family heirloom quilt that was missing. That way hopefully the righ owner and not just anyone wanting a free quilt may claim it. They would need to identify it with names and all before the Center turns it over.

    I am sending this to the people in my quilt group. Maybe some of you in okc could do the same and get the word out.
