Not sure if all of you have seen this site yet but what a great idea. Hope somewhere, somehow, we can keep our eys open and help get these back to their rightful owners.

No but that is truely interesting to see that many quilts lost, stolen or given away. They are beautiful quilts.

Makes me want to wait till I can travel to Texas to give my daughters the quilts I've made for them.

It also makes me wonder if these packages are routinely X rayed and the workers simply take what they want from them and throw out the packaging.

As one of the unfortunate people who's quilt landed on that site, thank you for spreading the word. The more people know, the more likely the quilts will be found. I can't tell you how many people have spread the word about my quilt - I even have a website, craftsy.com, that is offering a $5000 reward for its return.

I still don't know what happened to my quilt, Kaaterskill. Being able to send people to the lost quilt site has been a tremendous help, though. I'm grateful that Maria Elkins started it.
