    New Quilter goal accomplished!

    These two crib-sized quilts were my first projects completed in my weekly quilt class, which began in September. My goal was to have them finished in time to give them to daughter and daughter-in-law by Thanksgiving. Finished the cool color one's binding just in time for sending it packing with my out of state, visiting DIL. Whoop!

    Hi and welcome to the board from Iowa. Nice quilts. What lovely gifts and so well done. I am sure they were thrilled to receive these lovely gifts. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Great job. They are both very pretty.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
