Sharon go!'s to Dresden - gone can you find it?

This quilt was designed and made by Simon Henry. It was hung at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham this year, where it was awarded Highly Commended. It has failed to get home to Derby. It should have been shipped with Expofreight who are looking into it, but at the moment can't find any tracking information for it. I'm really hoping it has just got left on the lorry or something equally daft and easy to do, but who knows. So here is the plea, have you seen it since the exhibition? Any leads would be appreciated. You can contact me, or Simon just click on his name above and it will take you to his web site where there are contact details. Please keep your eyes open and I hope I will soon be able to tell you it's been found.

I am quilting the art quilt today but I will leave posting about it until tomorrow, so this has a chance to reach as many eyes as possible, sorry.

I do hope this is found! I'll email your post around a bit. You never know!

How awful that his quilt got lost. I hope it turns up soon.

I'm so sorry, Ferret. Being in the midst of my own lost quilt drama, my suggestion is that he make as much of an uproar as possible. Contact the papers, use Facebook, and make sure to put it up on Maria Elkins' Lost Quilt website.The more people looking, the better.

I hope it comes home soon.

That's pretty much what I said Janet, would you like to put up a link to the details of your lost quilt here, if we are looking for one we can look for two
