and Joy.'”

PLEASE HELP!! Let’s blow up social media with this information. LeeAnn was traveling to Mountain Quilt Fest in Pigeon Forge, TN today when she lost this beautiful quilt.If you’re familiar with Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilts, this is from the most recent mystery quilt, Good Fortune. In her own words: “Driving down the road about an hour ago near the conference center. The back of my friend’s car popped open (just outside of Honey Baked Ham 2740 Teaster Lane, Pigeon Forge, TN around 5 PM on March 21, 2019) my machine rolled out! We got to the center for Bonnie’s class and realized that a black rolling briefcase full of Christmas scraps, a Cincinnati phone book & my Good Fortune top must have rolled out too! My machine is fine, but I’m heartbroken that the black rolling briefcase and quilt are gone! If you find it or see it or hear about it, please let me know!
