When I opened the card, a little tissue wrapped packet slipped out. I wonder what's inside?

For the second Sew and Tell, you'll have to skip over to Gail's blog to see her latest Yuletide Jewel.
Edit: 10 am This picture just in from a friend's iPhone, taken at the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry in Stellarton, N.S. It is very cool to see Canadian Heritage Quilting sharing shelf space with two other Maritime quilt classics. How wonderful!

It took awhile to work our way down the line...
Saturday 4 December 2010
Lynn was working a picot edge on the cuff of her mittens and I decided that would be a nice frilly addition to my wings.
A purple, air soluble marker was used to trace the scallops on the fabric.
Similarly, a cardstock template was made to mark the scrolls on a curvy line up the centre of the plain border.
The picots were repeated along the outer pieced border of the quilt, but other than that the wool batting was given space to plump and pouf and look invitingly soft. Hopefully, the amount of quilting on this piece has reached the perfect balance to rest one's body as well as one's eyes.
Now complete with binding and hanging sleeve, the quilt will wing it's way (pun intended) to Quilter's Connection for the spring issue. Once the editor gives the go ahead, pictures of the full quilt will be posted here.
