this afternoon,
I delivered Sally's quilt!

It's been ready for ages but obstacles kept preventing its delivery.

It didn't take us long to put it in position.

Doesn't it look great?

The colours are perfect in her bedroom....

and it sits beautifully on her pretty bed.

Some smaller projects next, I think.

  1. its beautiful, I am sure she will treasure this forever!

  2. What an heirloom you have given her. It is just beautiful. Job well done!

  3. Oh Helsie, that is so beautiful! No wonder Sally was pleased, as others have already said, this is an heirloom to be passed down through the family. I'm so pleased you included your photos on the label, what a lovely finishing touch. You are such a great Mum.

  4. The quilt is beautiful and I love that you made the pillow shams also. Your daughter must be so happy.

  5. She must be so thrilled.What a lovely present to keep and treasure.

  6. What a beautiful quilt! Your daughter will treasure it forever. I love your signature too! My hubby always called his mother "Mum" too. So sweeet...what a wonderful "Mum" you are!

    Thanks for the advice on my bench cover. I think I will take it. I will be happier in the end even if it is more work!

  7. It is beautiful and I love the little extra touch with the 'made by mum' label! I assume you also made those pillow cases?

  8. It looks fabulous Helen, what a beautiful gift for Sally.

  9. Beautiful and well worth the wait I'm sure.

  10. How on earth do you get that "Mum" label made? A lovely finishing touch.

  11. That really is a work of art. I bet Sally adores it. It looks so beautiful on the bed.

  12. Amazing Helen. What a wonderful quilt. I so love your beautiful design tag too
    Very jealous, green with envy :-)

  13. A beautiful quilt. I love the colours and the design. Simple but so effective. Is it hand quilted? I love the label, too, a super idea to have yourself on it.

  14. It really is beautiful and couldn't be a better match for the colours in the room. She must be over the moon with it.
