Thankyou all so very much for all of the lovely suggestions for a name for this quilt. I have written a number of them down for future use. It was very hard to choose just one but here is what Deb had to say :-
Hi Fee, its absolutely beautiful. I think you should call the Quilt " Fee's True Love" because of your love for your home, family and sewing.
Her comment really touched me because all of those things are important to me and in particular the making of my house into a home and the love of my family so it just fits really. So she now has a name
"Fee's True Love"
