    Missing quilt!!

    LOST QUILT!! If you see or have seen this quilt anywhere, PLEASE return it!! If you find it, please message me for my address, and I'll pay you back for postage (after it gets here) plus $20.


    I made this quilt for my mother-in-law approximately 6 1/2 years ago, and it apparently got lost in a move about 2 years ago.

    I hope you find your quilt. It is really frustrating. I had one disappear a while ago and I hate it. Good luck

    My granddaughter is missing a quilt from a dependent living facility she is living in. It had her name on it and it just disappeared and no one seems to know where it is.

    Best way to go. If I see it on FB I'll share. One thing about quilters, everyone of them know people etc.

    It is very hard to find lost quilts. My best friend mailed a baby quilt she made for her great nephew using priority flat rate and all that arrived was the label from the envelope. Never was seen again.

    I made a Sunbonnet Sue crib quilt for my niece....mailed it to Great Falls, MT.....it was delivered to their home....and stolen off the front porch!!!! This was two years ago...post office was notified, cops were notified.....and I'll guarantee that pretty pink quilt is laying in a ditch somewhere in MT right now!

    Not a Quilt but a wall hanging I just made for a swap is probably going to end up like that! I mailed it right away, I have my tracking number, but low and behold, the P.O. has no record of it after it left the facility in our city - and that was 6 days ago! Sick about it, but nothing I can do.

    Go down and sit on their front door step til they find it!! They do have a lost and found.

    To Rennie regarding the quilt you shipped 6 days ago; I work for a company that has lots of shipments every day. We having been getting notices from UPS and Fed Ex both that all shipments are dramatically delayed because of the bad weather in Memphis last week. Seems most everything goes through that hub and some shipments are over a week past due...I hope that is the case for you.

    Oh that is not a good thing. I hope you find it. Was there a moving company involved?
