Buford’s Quilt

Stephanie Nohl needs help recovering her “Buford’s Quilt” which is a family memorial. This quilt was last seen on May 10, 2016 in Stephanie’s house in Clyde, Texas. Her house flooded in May and everything had to be moved out. When they were able to move back in, some items were donated to Goodwill, and this was accidentally among those items.

This lap quilt was made for her in 2016 by Scarlett Kortell. It was made from her dad’s work shirt that says “Buford and Quality Implement” and it features a John Deere tractor, along with fabric from his plaid shirts. It has purple backing. It has a label on the bottom corner of the back which indicates who made the quilt.

If you find this quilt, please contact Stephanie at stephanie_08_22_82@yahoo.com.

Snowball/Bowtie

Susan Therrien is searching for a Snowball/Bowtie quilt that was made for Cynthia Watson by Matilda (Fox) Becker. This quilt was lost by a moving company. It was last seen on May 17, 2016 either in Jacksonville, Florida or in Winchester, Virginia where it was to be delivered to a warehouse. There is an ongoing fraud investigation of the trucking company, moving company, and storage warehouse. An entire houseful of furniture and personal items just “disappeared” sometime between loading in Jacksonville in May and when it was supposed to be delivered to Stevens City, Virginia in September.

This quilt is 76″ by 82″. The background and backing are off-white muslin. The bowties are early 1900’s dress fabrics. The quilt was longarm quilted in 2014, but the quilt top was hand pieced in the early 1900’s. It has an inkjet-printed label hand sewn to the bottom corner of the back of the quilt which says:

SNOWBALL/BOWTIE
76 X 82
Pieced by Matilda (Fox) Becker
Connelly, Ulster County, NY
Circa 1900 to 1940
Quilted by Linda Bauman
Legacy Quilts
New Castle, PA
April 2013

This quilt was one of four quilt tops Susan’s great-grandmother pieced sometime in the early 1900’s. Susan had it quilted when she lived in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. She then gave it to her oldest sister who is just sick about the loss of these family heirlooms during this disastrous move.
