The stealth present

This year we all had our lists, and we all got what we wanted (and expected). But Allison had something special planned for Carol. With much stealthiness and subterfuge, she worked at our neighbor's house under false pretenses, and having never sewn before, made this wonderful quilt for her Mom. It is spectacular, and it was a special treat for the master quilter. As Alli said on her card: "Like mother, like daughter."
