Lost: Colorful Paisley Quilt

Shelly Welton is asking for help in finding a quilt that was left in a laundromat in Kentwood, Michigan in 2007. The quilt measures 100′ x 100″ and is made of 11 different colors of paisley fabrics, collected over time. In 2002 Shelly designed the quilt pattern (all squares) on graph paper, and machine pieced it together. The backing has a couple rows of the print running across the top, and the rest is all plain white/cream. Thick embroidery thread was used to tie the quilt.

Shelly said, “There are no extra bells and whistles, as this was my first bed-size quilt, and it was (in my eyes) perfect! That’s why I call it ‘My Pride
and Joy.'”

Shelly’s quilt was last seen at a laundromat in Kentwood, Michigan. “My husband left it in one of the dryers, apparently. I didn’t notice that it was missing for two months later, when I went to use it, and it was gone. I just know someone has it, or knows about it! I am offering a $250.00 reward for the return of my quilt (in decent order)”

If you know anything about the whereabout of this special quilt, please contact Shelly Welton at shwacky@comcast.net
