This is an EGG ART QUILTIE for a swap! The dimensions are about 6 1/2 inches egg! Hehehehe! I did some applique and stitching, adding of embellishments,stitching and then hand blanket stitched the edge with colored thick thread and sewed in a fun fiber yarn while I did that to make an intersting finish to the edge! The quote says, "Walk tall as the trees, live strong as the mountains, be gentle as the spring winds" That is on the front, the back says..."keep the warmth of the summer sun in your heart and the great spirit will always be with you." I look forward to receiving my egg art quilt too! These mini pieces are such an inspiration to receive!

I LOVE this -- it is so beautiful! I really like the fibre around the edge -- it adds an extra texture and it makes the quiltie seem really dimensional....
