MISSING QUILT TOP

My blog today will center on a missing quilt top.

As many of you know, I work at a local quilt shop; Pieceful Quilting in Riverhead, New York.
As many quilt shop do, we have various Block of the Month programs throughout the year.
One such BOM is Women of Courage from Nancy Gere and Windham Fabrics.
This is a quilt designed by Denice Lipscomb.


This photo doesn't do this quilt justice.  It is a beautiful quilt that measures 98" x 98".

I spent many hours at home cutting and preparing the fabrics for and piecing many of the blocks. With the help of one of my co-workers the piecing was completed and the quilt top was hung in the shop for viewing in early June.
We started the BOM program in September.

Now for the unfortunate part of this story - sometime between September 4, 2012 and September 29, 2012 the quilt top disappeared from the shop.
I am so disheartened and saddened by this. 
  
Now, the quilt top is gone and I don't have a sample to refer to for the class.
Not to mention that I couldn't wait for the BOM program to end (in 12 months) so I could have this beautiful quilt top quilted and taken home with me.
You see, having done the work on this quilt top sample for the shop, after the program ends this quilt would belong to me.


Please be on the look out for this quilt top and let me know if you see it.
It belongs first to Pieceful Quilting in Riverhead, New York and
second to me.

Thank you,
Colleen

Hi Colleen, I found your wonderful blog while blog hopping/stalking, you know the old check out one, then another and soon you just do not remember where you started. Wonderful blog you have.

Anyway, I simply do not understand what compels a person to take what is clearly not theirs!! I am so sorry for your lost and do hope that the quilt is found very soon.

blessings, jill
