Lost: Blue Plate Special Quilt

Blue Plate Special Quilt


Coffee cup embroidered into center of each dresden plate block

Ricky McKaig is asking for help in finding a quilt she made in 2010, which she called Blue Plate Special.  Ricky described her quilt in this way, “The quilt is a hand made Dresden Plate design, various blue fabrics making up the “plate” design with a white and blue embroidered coffee cup design in the middle of each plate. The plates are appliqued onto blue and white striped fabric. Each corner block is appliqued on blue fabric.”

The quilt has a label attached into the binding, in the bottom center on the back: “Blue Plate Special created by Ricky McKaig, 2010”

“The idea was to emulate the old truck stop restaurants and diners of the
50’s and 60’s that offered “Blue Plate Specials”, their special meals
of the day.  The Dresdens were the blue plates, and the center was the
endless cups of coffee you could always get with these meals.”

“I was urged to put the quilt on consignment in a little gift shop of some mutual friends in Eufaula, Oklahoma. The gift shop went out of business a few weeks later and the quilt disappeared.”

I appreciate any effort you and everyone at Lost Quilt Come Home can
give me.  If you know anything about this Blue Plate Special quilt, please contact Ricky at rickymckaig@gmail.com

Stolen: Graduation 2016 Quilt

Becky Robinson made a colorful quilt to celebrate her grandson’s 2016 graduation of red, blue, green, and white fabrics.   She also included Pickles comic strip panels, pictures of rolled-up diplomas, airplanes, and golf images.  The quilt was machine pieced and quilted.

Raymond’s quilt was last seen on July 5, 2018 in his living room in Lincolnton, North Carolina. It was stolen in a burglary later that week. The family assumes “the quilt was used to pad or conceal the two TVs that were also stolen.”

Regarding this missing quilt, The Robinsons said, “My grandson’s house was burglarized, probably on July 6 or 7, 2018, in the Boger City area of
Lincolnton, N.C. We figure the quilt, being in the living room, was
used to cover the two TVs that were also taken. The quilt was designed
and made by my wife as a graduation gift in 2016. It commemorates some
of the fun things we used to do when the kids came here to Indiana
during the summers. There are also panels from the Pickles comic strip
that relate to grandparents and grandkids. We are heartbroken over
this heartless act, and would appreciate any information if you see it

A reward of $250 will be paid upon its return, or for information leading directly to its recovery. If you know where it is please contact Glenn Robinson (260) 330-9625 or my grandson in Lincolnton at (980) 282-0778.”
