You can see her book, WORLD WAR TWO QUILTS, on Amazon here. It's great -- I bought a copy for my library, and am planning/hoping to add it to our inventory on Brickworks.
Here's Sue's post:

The World War II Quilts were at the Asheville quilt show the first weekend of
August. I am pained to report 4 of them have been stolen. The empty trunk was
delivered to FedEx in New Jersey and there it sits. Despite all of the
precautions I take at sending quilts, they were not properly returned in a
secure manner. Three of the four trunks fortunately returned safely but none
were taped and garbage bag ties were used instead of the locking plastic ties.
The trunks did have tracking numbers and were sent second day delivery but it
still took me nearly one week to finally determine the status of the missing
trunk. The quilts disappeared somewhere between Charlotte and New Jersey.
Here is a list of the missing quilts.
1. Navy Insignia quilt in the Winter blue. It's condition was excellent.
Pg. 122 of World War II Quilts.
2. The wholecloth Canadian Red Cross Quilt. Slightly faded. Pg. 145 of World
War II Quilts.
3. The Night Shift Workers Quilt. It's condition was excellent. Pg. 15 of
World War II Quilts.
4. The Hazleton Fund Raising summer quilt. (This is the quilt I recently wrote
about from the Vermont Quilt Festival.) It's condition was excellent. Pg. 135
of World War II Quilts.
Lastly was the sweet Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt, I use as a table cover.
These quilts are very distinctive and recognizable. Hopefully, the thief will
not be very smart and will get them to the open market and soon.
Please know that I will appreciate any and all help in getting the quilts
returned. My address and telephone number were on the sleeves of each quilt
but they are easily removed.
I plan to send an alert on Stolen quilts, also.
Washington Depot, Connecticut
Thanks for any help you can give.
