Quilt With Us

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

What a beautiful pattern! I'm so sorry that yours has gone missing. Every day I am flabbergasted by the mean, dishonest and cruel things people do. I hope it is returned to you.

How low can people go?  Very sad and disappointing, to think that someone would do this!

That's such a wicked thing to do! I am very sorry for you and your shop too. I hope those who do the BOM get together and do one for you!

How sad.  A quilt that belonged to a friend of mine in Las Vegas was traveling with the Hoffman Challenge & it was stolen out of an exhibit at a show in WA State.  Just boggles the mind that someone would do this.  I hope it is recovered soon & with no damage.

Colleen I understand your dilemma and hope that as a quilter or customer of the quilt show that the top gets returned to you even if it is done annonymously. Good luck with the retrieval of this quilt it is a lovely pattern and I am sure the real thing is just as gorgeous.

Unbelievable what people will resort to!  I hope you get this beautiful artwork back.

It sadden me to hear that there are people around that do this, how can they possibly enjoy this hanging on their wall knowing they have stolen it. My hopes that it will mysteriously turn up and that the person who stole it would return it to you.

Sad deal.  I hope it is recovered.

How sad that someone had the nerve to steal it. Sorry to hear this. It is a beautiful quilt and I know a lot of time and love went into it. I hope and pray the guilty party returns it to it's rightful owners.
