Debbie Witt hopes to recover a quilt she made for her granddaughter, Sabie. The quilt was last seen on December 18, 2017 in Fredericksburg, Virginia. It was wrapped, packaged, and shipped to her granddaughter in Wildwood, Missouri. Debbie just found out the quilt never arrived. At the time, there was a rash of packages stolen from porches in their neighborhood, so they do not know if it was delivered to the wrong person or stolen. The shipper confirmed delivery on December 21.

Laura Gill remembers a family quilt that was made by her Aunt Margaret. While she does not remember many of the details, she does know that the names Kathy, Lauri, Debbie, and Becky are sewn on the quilt. It was probably made in the 70s or 80s. It was last seen in 1992 in Thousand Oaks, California. While it was not technically stolen, it was intentionally put in a garage sale without their permission because of a grudge.
Her family would love to be reunited with this quilt. If you find this quilt that fits this description, please contact Laura at email@example.com.

Joni Thomson is searching for her Star Crossed Quilt. The quilt top was last seen during August 2016 when it was shipped from Davenport, Florida to Salt Lake City, Utah. Some of the contents of the box were found and returned to her, but not this quilt top or the fabrics and scraps that were with it.

This quilt top is 48″ by 48″. The pastel blocks are set off by an aqua check sashing along with red and white nine-patch cornerstones. She used fabrics by Fig Tree & Co. This quilt top was machine pieced in 2016.
