    Me too! And I am sure the thief was not a Unitarian--that church is the most liberal, progressive, open & kind imaginable. (Many members are old hippies). Hope they can recover the lost quilts and they were not too badly damaged.

      How awful! I hope that they are able to recover the quilts undamaged.

        That's terrible! How and why would someone steal something like that?

          That just plain stinks! Hope they are found in good condition. Those ladies must be heartbroken...

                They can't get much money for them. They are very unique quilts that it would be very hard to sell without getting caught. If they were regular quilts they could probably get away with it but again, it would be hard to get much money for them. Seriously, is there a black market for quilts?

                  Only scumbags would do this.

                  it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                    What Sandy said. I shared this story on Facebook myself. Perhaps if it gets shared enough, the thieves might think twice about selling them.
                    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                      So sad. I will never be able to figure out why people do the things they do, that are so obviously wrong. SMDH

                        Yes but if they can't sell them they might destroy them.

                          Not so sure I agree. There was no mention of a break-in at all. Sounds like an "inside job".

                          Whatever it was, it is rotten. Hope they are recovered, undamaged.

                            My guess, just a guess, is they will take them to the States or abroad and hope the word hasn't spread they are stolen. OR they'll hang onto them for a year or two when we've all "forgotten" and then try to sell them. By the way lostquilt.com is a great resource for locating quilts, posting quilts you've found and keeping stolen quilts fresh in your mind.
