Hand Me Down, Please.

Since I'm on the subject of hands and handiwork, here are a few photos of my latest project. Technically, it is a pieced coverlet, not a quilt, because it is tied instead of quilted. I much prefer quilting but I don't know how to machine quilt and hand quilting this piece was not practical. It's a baby "quilt" and needs to be sturdy and machine washable. Plus, the baby would have been entering first grade by the time I got it finished. So, it is tied....the baby doesn't seem to mind.
