I just learned about Patsy Thompson, a fantastic quilter and fiber artist, whose car was broken into and had several quilts stolen. You read that right. Quilts. More than one. :( You can read about it here on her blog:
Patsy's stolen quilts
This photo at the top of this post is of one of her amazing quilts that has been stolen. You can see photos of other quilts or blocks that were stolen on her blog.
I just don't understand what would make someone steal quilts. Unfinished ones, at that! We pour so much of ourselves into our quilts that it feels like a part of ourselves has been lost when they go missing. I had a quilt get lost in the mail once, so I understand the horrible feeling of having a quilt disappear. But the feeling of violation Patsy must be feeling by having her car invaded... what a terrible thing.
So please keep your eyes open for these quilts and blocks. Let's see if we can help to return Patsy's things to her and catch the person who took them.
