Betty's First Quilt!

Today I sewed one side of the binding on and, my mother-in-law, Betty (Mrs. Kitts) is busy handsewing the other side of the binding down. This quilt was 4 1/2" unfinished squares so she could practice sewing 1/4" seams and joining the rows together.  For someone who hadn't even used a sewing machine until a few weeks ago,   I think she did a fantastic job!  She is already planning her next quilt!  Better pictures tomorrow, we didn't want to take it outside and get it dirty:)

Victoria came to live with us today, my elder cats are closely inspecting her crate.  I won't pet the kitten with them around until they become more adjusted to her. She is laying on a huge stuffed animal in her crate, sound asleep.  My husband is doing all the holding and petting...she is a little character!
