Yay, I managed to finish this off today:
I really love how this has turned out - thank you to Sheilas mystery quilt along. This has taught me how to paper piece and Sheila sent me a link to a great you tube video and I am now a paper piece convert!
I love the colours too. So, now I have to try and find a suitable fabric to put on as the border and I will be well on my way to another quilt
