Okay, I have never quilted before, and was a little apprehensive about posting in here because well, gosh, look at how amazingly talented you all are! But I was encouraged to do so.
 

I am taking a Beginning Quilting by Hand Course, and here are my first four blocks.......
(Please be nice)

  This is my latest block, I am actually pretty happy with how it turned out!

When I am all done, I will hopefully have a baby quilt!

So beautiful!  I can't wait to see the finished quilt! 

BTW, your kitty cat is incredibly lovely.  Did you know that when your cat squints at you, it means, "I love you"?
