    I am so sorry that happened. Whoever took your quilts and things have no idea of what a treasure the have taken, nor how much time and effort and "lifes blood'' have gone into the making. I just pray when they realize what they have they will make the effort to return it all to you. They don't realize the monetary value of what they have taken, or even where to take them to find someone who realizes the value. Again, so sorry for your loss.

    I think it is the opposite to this. They know exactly how much they are worth and it should be regarded as the same as any other art theft.

    I understand her frustration and disappointment; however, common sense would dictate that something as valuable as those quilts would not be left in any vehicle ever, especially overnight at a hotel/motel. A thief sees a suitcase and sees dollar signs. Maybe ten years ago, the vehicle would have been left alone; however, now days with so many people on drugs and out of work, this type of behavior unfortunately will escalate. Just at Christmas when the police tell everyone not to keep valuables in their vehicles due to thieves, this sound advice needs to be heeded all year around. This is just my opinion. Tks. G

    I agree but I sure hope they are found. I would have taken the suitcase inside the motel with me or locked it in the trunk of the car. Now days too many people have no regard for other peoples belongings - too many think they are owed things themselves and if it is there it is for the taking. Also New B. is on I-35 and it is very very busy. They could be anywhere by now. Most likely in San Antonio or in Mexico even. My son lives near New B.

    It is heart breaking all your beautiful quilts gone. I have lived in this area for a long time and will tell anyone traveling through to never leave anything in a car in a hotel or motel parking lot.San Antonio to Austin it is something you here about all the time. It even goes on when you are eating or shopping, if it can be seen in the car someone will try to take it. They have stolen moving U Hall trucks of family's moving to race cars in hotel parking lots, so be sure to take what you have in your car inside. I will be keeping an eye out for your quilts in the local flea markets. I sure hope they are found.

    Unfortunately, this statement is very true. Cars are being broken into while in their own driveways (mine) and since I don't leave anything of value in it-they took the garage door opener- which meant getting the garage door people to come out and reprogram and get me a new remote ($150) and also about 6 "used" Walmart gift cards, which I used for getting gas...but they were all down to zero balancer-ha, ha, to whomever...........Neighbor saw teens sitting on the curb at the house next door and really did not think about anything.........who knows.....now, however, I am really conscious of everything and everybody!!! and leave nothing in the vehicle no matter where I park.........not a good way to live, but things are not good these days.......

    Those are stunning! It's awful that the thief didn't appreciate the artist. Maybe a alarm chip could be placed under the label so the owner could locate it with GPS and the thief can't deactivate it without the "key code".
