    Very nice. In the picture of the baby quilt, it appears that the outer border was not sewn on with a consistent 1/4" seam. It may just be the picture, but it looks like your seam is making the blue inner border appear wavy. It looks thinner in parts and wider in parts. I sometimes have trouble with this on longer borders, also. And I've ripped out more stitches, than I care to count to try to correct the same problem.

    But overall, they are very well done. I especially like the pillows. :thumbup:

    I know you said you would appreciate criticism but I really don't see anything to criticize. You are doing lovely work by the looks of things. Nice sharp points and a good eye for color.

    I think you're off to a great start! I look back at my first quilt and I cringe. We all have to start somewhere. You have a nice eye for color too.

    Looks good to me. You have a great eye for color. Watch for cut off points. I have trouble with that too.
