    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.

    Good Good Good :thumbup:

    For a first attempt, you are doing a wonderful job! Keep practicing.

    It's really fun to look back at pics of your firsts when you are on down the line, and can see the progress you have made.

    Very nice. IMHO you are going about it the right way - start with easy patterns and gradually get to the more difficult patterns. I learn something with every quilt I make. I hope you enjoy years and years of quilting.

    I think your projects look great. I've been quilting for a while and I still have problems but practice makes perfect. Quilting is addictive.... so have fun with it.
