My quilt never returned from Virginia

If you read my post below this one, you will see that I was excited my quilt had been juried into the Mancuso Mid-Atlantic quilt show in Hampton, Virginia for display and judgingl

Tonight I am heartsick as my quilt was not in the box that was returned to me.   All of the packing materials are in there - down to the fabric ties I use to secure a quilt rolled on a tube.,,,and wrapped in fabric and plastic.   It is like they forgot to put the quilt inside and just sent off the box by mistake.   I'm hoping that it somehow got misplaced or put in with someone else's quilt and they received two by mistake.   

The box showed no evidence of being cut and retaped, nor does the box show any evidence of tearing or ripping from tape being removed.   

This is a quilt made from a manipulated photo that I took in Florida and had printed onto fabric by Red Dpg Enterprises,   The quilt has a fused label and a sewn label.   Yes, it is insured....but as you might is not about the money!

  1. I am so sorry to hear about the (hopefully temporary) disappearance of your quilt! I can't imagine how you must feel. I once had a gift sent to me that arrived as an empty box. Turned out my dad had taken out the gift to change something, and somehow the gift never got put back in before it was shipped. I hope your quilt is found as easily.
