Helen's Quilts

I got a lovely e-mail from Helen who does not have a blog and wanted to share them with you all.
 First, this table runner with so many beautiful flying geese.
 Then this set of blocks which have given me inspiration as to how to finish some of my 16 patch leader and ender blocks from last year. 
And finally, this beautiful setting for Squared Away.  I love anything with stars. This layout really ties all the blocks together beautifully.  
Thanks for sharing Helen!  I hope that you are able to continue your scrappy sewing in the new year.

Those are AWESOME!!! I couldn't choose a favorite, if you paid me. I absolutely LOVE them ALL, Helen!!! (The setting for your Squared Away Sampler is genius.)

That's a great way to put Squared away together.

Beautiful original settings! I usually think that when I've finished the blocks that's it. But your finishing is just as important as the blocks you made. Thank you for sharing these finishes.

The colour arrangement for your flying geese tablerunner is definitely my favourite. I'm a scrappy quilter, and quite in love with colour.
