Pam’s Halloween Quilt

Vanessa Avery is looking for the Halloween Quilt the she made for her sister, Pam. It was last seen during the beginning of 2017 in the Jacksonville, Illinois area. Pam left it some people when she went into the hospital, and she went back several times to retrieve it. Eventually they told her they burned it, but she wasn’t sure if they were telling the truth.

Pam’s birthday was on Halloween, so Vanessa made the quilt using all Halloween fabrics. The main colors are red, orange, black, yellow, and purple. Some patches have eyes that glow in the dark. The quilt is approximately 60″ by 60″. It is machine pieced and machine quilted.

Pam passed away on July 2, 2017, and Vanessa would love to be able to give it to her granddaughter if there is any chance the quilt was not destroyed. If you find this quilt, please contact Vanessa at Vgavery3263@hotmail.com.

Recovered! Dresden Plate

Carolina was hoping to recover a Dresden Plate quilt made by her great-grandmother using her dresses. Her uncle took the quilt top, had it cleaned, and had it remade with new backing and batting, and then he gave it to Carolina on her birthday in 2013 as a family heirloom. On March 30, 2017 a moving company came to her home in Wenatchee, Washington and moved the wooden chest that had the quilt. It was delivered to Brownsville, Texas on April 10, but the quilt was no longer in the chest. Carolina believes the quilt may be in Washington, Texas, or California.

Fortunately, during August 2017, the quilt was found in a mis-labeled box, so we have another happy ending!
