First Quilts

Iris and I pieced a baby quilt. (We haven't sashed it yet, but this is the current selection.)

Our departmental secretary is expecting a baby boy in March. His initials are embedded in pattern.

It's a bit puckered, and I dithered about whether I should redo it for her. But, when I told our secretary about the puckering, she told me very emphatically NOT to try to 'correct' Iris' sewing. She said that, if it fell apart at the seams a bit, she would hand stitch it back together.

Speaking of hand stitching seams together, here's my first quilt.

It needed a little repairing after washing, too.  There are some tucks, but no "toe-catchers".
