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!
    Somebody will have a great find, did you put a tag on it yet? So sorry for your loss, my heart goes out to you.

    I have with other things. Do not put stuff in trash bags. You can buy clear plastic trash bags and I use those now for items I want to put in a plastic bag.

    You probably put it somewhere else and was thinking of something else when you did it! How many times have we all done that? I am sure it will turn up.
    A few years ago, my dh and I was in MO and when we came home I couldn't find my favorite pajamas, I was just sick. I called the hotel and nogo. I couldn't beleive I did that, I tore my house apart looking for them for weeks. They were my favorite! Finally resigned myself to the fact that I lost them and left them at the hotel. A year later I was in my attic digging through a old trunk of clothes and there they were! How in the world did they get there? :) Point learned here though, use clear bags for this type of thing.

    Oh, please tell us you've found it! I'm so hoping you didn't inadvertently throw it out. Bless your heart. I hurt for you.

    I feel for you. I did that with a $300 backdrop that I needed for a photo shoot. My husband took it out with the trash. Ugh! I hope that is not what happened to you...

    No, you did not toss it. It will turn up. Been there, done that. You would not do that. You put it somewhere safe. Keep looking. Good luck:)

    Just want to say thanks to everyone for their prayers and words of comfort and kindness. It hasn't turned up yet, but in the back of my mind I keep hoping it will. Your words mean ALOT, because you understand how these quilts are a part of us. Thanks again to all of you and always check before you toss those darn plastic bags!

    My sister made a quilted wall hanging for me when I was first married. We had some work done on the house and everything got very dusty unexpectedly. I put it in a black plastic garbage bag along with a set of curtains I made for my dining room to take to the cleaners. I set the bag at the top of the stairs to carry to the car. Well, you can probably guess what happened next. My husband thought it was garbage, grabbed it, and ran to the curb with it as the truck pulled up. By the time I got out of the shower, dressed, and went to grab the bag it was gone forever. I cried for days. I have never used a garbage bag for anything but garbage since that day.
