PIEDMONT, Oklahoma -

The Piedmont Service Center is looking to find the owner of very special looking quilt, lost in the deadly tornado that hit the area in May 2011.

It was discovered two months after the storm, but today its owner is still a mystery. The quilt was found in a field by a local farmer, then washed by another woman, and delivered to the service center last summer. Ever since then, a volunteer has tried to find out who it belongs to.

The tag says made by "Grammie" on it and it looks like it has been passed down through years.

"Everyone was in their storm shelters and praying it wouldn't hit piedmont," said Mary Growe.

Growe helped all she could at the Piedmont Service Center following the tornadoes.

"It's brought everybody together. People went all out to help everybody," said Growe.

Now, Growe is trying to help another tornado victim who lost a quilt, a quilt that looks to have significant meaning for an entire family.

"It was made by 'Grammie'," said Growe.

On the quilt are pictures of dresses and names, all stitched with care.

"She did the same pattern for girls, but all in a different dress."

By the looks of it, "Grammie" has 20 special girls.

"If this is all her grandkids, I'm amazed. I have a lot of grandchildren, but not that many, and not all girls," said Growe. "Who knows where this came from. It could be as far as El Reno or further."

For now it will be at the Piedmont Service Center waiting for the family, if they ever come forward.
