After an enormous amount of trouble changing my header tonight I have finally fixed it via Tony's computer.
I can't work out what the problem is but it could just be that my computer is fast reaching the end of its capabilities and I NEED a new computer !!!

Finally tonight I bring you my big TA-DA.

Yes, my quilt is finally completed !!
Yah !!

Here it is.......

It has now taken up residence in my bedroom.......

where it looks very pretty.
Now I just have to finish the other pillowcase!



  1. Beautiful quilt, congratulations. Very pretty colours.

  2. Absolutely LOVE it, Helen - well done! May just have to commission one of these (or learn how to quilt!)

  3. Well done , it looks really beautiful, especially on your bed. Yellow and blue is so fresh and pretty.
