    Hi Everyone -

    This is a picture of a quilt top I made that is MISSING.
    It disappeared from the Dutch Rose Quilt Shop in Sioux Falls, SD approximately March of 2008. This is a top only - not quilted and is about 36 inches square. It is made of batiks. I had it in the store to try and find a back for it and laid it on a table.

    If anyone sees this, please send me a private message.

    This was one of my favorites, I can't replicate it and I'd love to have it back.
    Thank you,
    Roberta

    How awful!!! And I thought quilters were honest people! I guess not all of them are. What a shame, I certainly hope you find it.

    Sure hope you get it back.

    Good think you had enough sense to take a photo of it while you still had it.

    You must be sick about this! I would be. The quilt is beautiful. Hopefully it will turn up.

    I found two sites for lost/stolen quilts. You might want to post pictures there.

    http://www.softexpressions.com/galle...olenquilt.html

    Hope it's OK to post these links.

    That's really sad. I'm so sorry for you. Hard to believe but that happens everywhere I guess..........
    I've seen websites that featured lost quilts and some have been recovered. Hope it works out for you.

    Just had another idea. Does your quilt shop have a list of long arm quilters? If so, maybe you could contact them to be on the lookout. Also check into posting pictures in the shop where it came up missing as well as other shops around town.

    Wow....the only way I could even start to get past my anger over this issue would be......"I hope they really needed to have my quilt top"......but in the realm of life....just how necessary is it to steal a quilt top. No one will starve, not have roof over their head etc. Which says to me.....stupid, ignorant and without morals!!! I'm sorry you're going through this. Good luck in your search/recovery of your quilt top! Okay quilting police.....now's the time for you to come out and play!

    I love that quilt look and I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you found it. Why would someone do that? Makes me both angry and sad. I have that pattern I think--is that the Mexican Star or something like that?

    Yes, mexican star. Worse things have happened to me so I take it in stride. I, too, hope whoever has it feels a twinge of guilt when they look at it.

    Stolen from a quilt shop, amazing!!! It is beautiful and I hope someone feels guilt and returns it.
    We passed around a card (large department) for funeral flowers for a coworker and someone stole the money from it. Some people are heartless.

    I don't know how some people can live with themselves.......

    Stealing money from a funeral card is way worse - unbelieveable.

    I just went to the site you have here. I can't believe how many quilts are stolen..
    My guild has a form on our site where you put all the information and a picture of the quilt.

    Oh Roberta, that's beautiful. I feel so bad for you...sure hope somehow you can get it back.

    I did the same thing once. I had brought a quilt into the shop to look for backing and walked out without it. I realized it on my way home and luckily it was still there when I called back to ask about it. I was in a panic!!
