Janet Atkins Missing Quilt

Have you seen this quilt?
Craftsy is offering a $5,000 reward for the return of the lost quilt Kaaterskill by Janet Atkins.

Janet has won numerous awards with her beautiful hand pieced, and hand quilted, 4 years in the making Kaaterskill. It was last seen February 16th in the Golden, Colorado office of Quilter's Newsletter after a photo shoot.
The quilt was picked up by UPS, not scanned and now is lost.
It sounds like every quilter's nightmare, doesn't it?
You can go to Quilter's Newsletter's web site to read more about Janet, her quilt and the reward being offered.

As a support for Janet, let's all send out a big SHOUT OUT in her behalf.
Use what ever social media you are most comfortable with: blog post, twitter, or even make an announcement with your guild.
I really believe that quilters working together can make a difference.
Let's be that difference in locating Kaaterskill and it's safe return to Janet.

My heart goes out to Janet and to the magazine people too. UPS ?

It would make me feel sick to lose a treaure like that quilt. Good for you supporting the cause to have it located. I'm hoping for a happy ending.

Me too - I'm hoping for a happy ending - I know of a few situations that have had no ending, though - hope it isn't one of those!
Hugs - Lurline♥

That is just awful! What a gorgeous piece of work, she must be heart broken. And since February too. I certainly hope that at the very least it was insured and UPS has paid its dues....

It is amazing how stuff like that happens. This is really horrible. Poor Janet.
