Watercolor Wreath

weiskircheramber-watercolorroundrobinAmber Weiskircher hopes to recover her round robin quilt. This quilt was last seen in March 2014. This was a “round robin” group project where each person sews a border onto a center square, and then mails it to the next person. The person receiving this quilt had moved but did not update their address. The quilt was sent from Montana to the old address on a military base in New York, and it was never seen again.

This quilt is about 60-70″ square. The main colors are pink, purple, and black. It was machine pieced and hand appliquéd in 2014.

If you find this quilt, please contact Amber at Ambs101@hotmail.com.

Cassie’s Quilt

blodgettdonna-cassiesquiltDonna Blodget is searching for Cassie’s quilt. The quilt was last seen during the Spring of 2014. It had been sent to a machine quilter in Georgia, and that quilter’s husband took it to Goodwill by mistake. The Goodwill said they never had it. Cassie’s mother did a lot of searching in Georgia to no avail.

This quilt is an oversized queen quilt. The main colors are psychedelic purple, green, and white. It was made with T-shirts with Cassie’s name and her teams’ names. This quilt is machine pieced. It was machine quilted in Georgia where it was last seen. The machine quilter was supposed to put on a label which says, “To Cassie with love from your family 2013.” It is also supposed to have an embroidery design of a girl at a piano, a basketball, and test of “Designed and hand made by Donna Blodgett.”

Tree of Life

thomasonannette-treeoflifeAnnette Thomason reports that her Tree of Life quilt was one of the quilts stolen on October 28, 2016 in Houston, Texas. It was in a trailer that had traveled from Indiana to the Houston International Quilt Festival. It was going to be delivered to her by longarm quilter, Jaime Wallen.

The queen-size quilt was made by Doris Reynolds and quilted by Jaime Wallen. It has a black background and multicolor leaves. It was started five years ago using fabric purchased at the 2010 Houston Quilt Festival.

Annette writes, “This quilt was specifically made for me by my mother. It represented different periods of my life. The fabric used for the tree trunks, each one was different. Some looked angry, lots of turmoil, desperate, when my son was diagnosed with cancer and it was a difficult and stressful time in my life, when my father died, sad and lonely, but also grateful he no longer had to suffer. When my daughter had heart issues, frightening and afraid, when my first grandchild was born, excited and happy, financial issues, when my husband got laid off, all the things that life has to offer – trials and tribulations.”

She continues, “This quilt is so very special and important to me and I am desperate to get it back, along with other people’s personal possessions and all of Jaime’s teaching tools that help so many quilters with their crafts.” If you have any information that can help with the recovery of this quilt or any of the other stolen items, please contact Annette at a3dtot@hotmail.com.
