Seeking precious baby quilt I accidentally donated in 2017
This is a long shot! In 2017, we moved from Ontario to BC. While in the process of purging our home of everything except what was most dear to us, I accidentally, and to my eternal regret, donated a bunch of linens not realizing that a very, very precious baby quilt was tucked in between. It was a quilt I had stitched by hand while pregnant with my one and only living child 10 years ago and was meant to be an heirloom. I was devastated! It was not noticed because it was folded so that only the white back was noticeable, and it blended in with everything else. I had donated the bundle to St. Vincent de Paul in Ottawa and they were extremely helpful about trying to help me find it, but since I didn't even notice it was gone until a month later, it was too late--someone had bought it. It was bought from the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store on Wellington, and the lady at the store said she had seen the quilt and had noticed how unique it was. I know there is almost no way this will work, but I desperately want that quilt back where it belongs--with my son and our family. It had hand-stitched wording on the front, with stitched animals encircling it, but I won't tell what it said to be able to verify the genuineness of anyone who may somehow answer this. I will say, though, that on the bottom of the back of the quilt I had stitched, very small, something like this: "For Damien, my firstborn son." Please, if you or anyone you know has this quilt, contact me! I am willing to pay to have this precious quilt back. Thanks.
