Helen's Quilt Armoire

This is Helen's beautiful armoire of quilts 
that she talked about at our January meeting.  
I was curious to see just what it looked like and how her quilts were arranged so I asked if she would take some pictures for our blog.  
Thanks again for sharing, Helen.  You are continually inspiring.
