Happy Ventine's Day from the Old Maid

It's finally done!! I got the last of the quilting done and the binding put on and it's at the shop as we speak.  Mel has the template patterns, graphs and instructions and it's ready to go- as soon as they get it all printed up.  What am I talking about?
This is a reproduction of a small valentine quilt from the 1850's. We're doing research into the Phoenix Factory, but as yet have found nothing.  There is a small inscription under the heart to "Squire Baldwine"  from "Old Mail".  Too sweet for words.  The kit will be available on a limited basis and when it's gone it's gone and there is no separate pattern available.  Get 'em while they're hot!   There are directions for working with waste canvas in one of the earlier posts.  Easy peasie.
