A pass along ...

This is from one of my quilting mail lists - oh my, someone will be heartbroken to discover the quilt is missing. Maybe posting this message will help find the owner/maker. (It is already posted on www.lostquilt.com.)

"On Sunday, June 21st, (2009) one of my neighbors found a quilt on the westbound lane of Hwy 64 near Tarboro, NC. She says the quilt was wrapped in one of those plastic blanket packages. The quilt appears to be newly made, in wonderful condition. She says it is hand and machine quilted. There is no label attached and she cannot find a signature. She wants to return it to its owner, as she is a needle worker, and says she would be sick if she lost one of her works.

Please pass this email around and if anyone knows anything, call Alison Boyette 252-813-1594) or email me at mom4matkat@gmail.com"

There is a lost quilt website at http://www.lostquilt.com/ and they might display this one. Don't know if they have a 'found' section, but they might start one if your friend wants to take a photo and inquire.

You'd have to wonder how a quilt could get lost like that. I hope it wasn't in the back of somebody's truck! Maybe they were moving and somebody just tossed it in with the other stuff in the truck. I hope they find the owner.
