    During a home robbery, my very first quilt was stolen... It's large....It has a Purple, solid color backing, made of granny squares of various fabrics, but has a 1 foot blue jean Butterfly in the middle on a large purple square.

    It was made with my grandmothers clothes after she passed away and I would love to have it back someday, so out of desparation Im asking everyone to keep an eye open for it. I doubt there is another quilt out there like it, its not that attractive, but its precious to me.

    If you've seen it anywhere in Oklahoma/ NW OK, or OKC...please let me know. Thank you for reading!

    I'm so sorry you've lost such a precious quilt! It's quite common for thieves to pile all the stuff they want to steal on the bed and bundle it up to carry out. Hopefully it will show up somewhere at a flea market or secondhand store where someone might see it. Did you try putting it on www.lostquilt site?

    Post an ad in the newspaper so many others in your area can be watching for it as well. I'm so sorry this has happened to you.

    Sorry to hear about the robbery, especially the fact they took your quilt. I hope you do get it back. Sad part is that it was probably someone you know that broke in. Someone that knows your habits, when you gone and for how long...

    I also hope you are able to find it, as I can imagine it means a lot to you! A few years ago I had 2 rings stolen that my grandma had left me. And actually monetarily they weren't worth much, but to me they were priceless! I am sure whoever took them didn't get a lot of money for them, and certainly did not take them because they loved them...It makes you feel so violated when that happens...

    I feel bad that your privacy was violated. This is one "material" item that is precious and they don't understand what it means to us. I do hope you can locate it.
