    You had me holding my breath. I scrolled down looking for your avatar because I was hoping you would find it. Happy ending!
    I couldn't tell from the pic - what fabric did you use for the third side of the block. It looks patterned. Does it have cats in it as well? Could you post a closeup?
    I love how you hand quilted around the cat shapes in the border. Great idea!

    Glad you found it. Now we can all breathe a little easier.

    Reminds me of the time we went on this vacation, left all my good jewelry with my DS, came back, got jewelry from her, but she had put it in small garbage bag with a few other goodies she gave us.

    Yep, you guessed it. DH thought it was trash even after I told him it was not, and he threw it away.

    To this day, 30 years later, he will not admit it.

    Unless God is trying to teach you a lesson. :? Trust me, God doesn't always give us everything we want. If He did, I'd have a long arm machine and be running my own business with it. :wink: And it wouldn't take me so long to find things. It would be so much better if He would simply make one of the many boxes downstairs glow when I'm searching for something. :lol:

    Wow, that is a gorgeous quilt! I love the tumbling blocks and your quilting is wonderful. Your mom is going to be thrilled!

    1. I am so happy that you found the quilt.
    2. It is BEAUTIFUL!
    3. I wish I could find a few things in my house. Darn place is not that big and stuff still gets lost. The bad thing, I remember thinking that wherever I put it was a PERFECTLY LOGICAL PLACE. (see my shaking head?)

    Did it maybe get put inside something else? I once lost an antique Christmas ornament for four years. It was in with a box of bows and ribbon. I know it is a pain, but you may find yourself tearing the sewing room (and others) apart again. If it has not left the house, you know it is there. I would get systematic and actually make a list of the places you have lookes. Sounds goofy, I know, but it worked for me when lost something once.

    To make a very, very long story short:

    Tony, Tony look around. Something's lost and can't be
    found.

    When you can't find something, recite it like a mantra and
    then let it go and do whatever you planned to do next.

    I am so happy you found it. Now that you have I will tell you that I put all of DH's work uniforms in a garbage bag for the laundry and put it by the back door. He of course took the trash out and gone were all of his uniforms. Not as bad as all of the good jewlery but still cost a fortune to replace.

    St. Anthony, St. Anthony, Please come around!
    Something is lost and must be found!

    This prayer has worked for me many times. Hope you find your quilt soon.

    It is gorgeous! I am so glad that you found it. Bet your blood pressure was through the ceiling. Now that you have calmed down, you deserve a break. Go have a nice cup of hot chocolate.
