Three quilts were reported stolen from the 4-H hallway at the Teton County Fairgrounds last Monday, said Patty Petersen, Teton County Fair Board Treasurer.

The three items include two quilts and a quilted table runner. Both of the quilts are queen-sized. One quilt is a red and blue Log Cabin pattern and the other is called a Hot Ziggety Pattern done in shades of blue and green Batiks, said Petersen on Monday.

“One of these quilts belongs to a young boy given to him by his mother,” she added. “He is heartbroken that it is gone. The other quilt took the owner over a year to get it completed.”

The Fair Board is offering a $250 reward for the return of these quilts no questions asked. Petersen stressed she didn’t want to get anyone in trouble, she only wanted the items back safely.

These quilts were entered in the county fair's open class competition and are blue ribbon winners.

She did file a report with the sheriff’s office and believes that the items were stolen from the 4-H building. Other items that were taken include: a photo of the Tetons mounted in glass with a black frame, a black case with a complete art kit inside, a galvanized trough that Seniors West of the Tetons uses to break ice into their drinks at the concession stand, a potted plant and a red cookie plate.

For any information on these items, please call Petersen at (208) 313-3034 or (208) 354-8790. She may also be reached at If you have the items in questions, please drop them off at the Extension Office in Driggs.
