Working on baby quilts

I quilted the second brown and pink quilt that I already had pin basted a while ago and also got the binding machine sewn on. I still need to do the hand stitching. This quilt is going to a lady at the shop where I get my hair cut. She had a baby girl in January.

Next I dug out my pile of backing pieces and scraps. I worked on the backings for the green and brown tops I put together a couple of months ago.

Here is the back and front of one of the green and brown quilts I got the back done and pin basted.

I have the second green and brown quilt laid out and ready to pin baste. I used two leftover blocks on the back of this quilt.

I have three or four more tops that need backs so I think I will continue making the backs and pin basting until they are all done. Then I will start quilting them, but I will probably bind them as I get them quilted.
Maybe I will put a dent in my scrap backing pile. It feels good to reduce this pile and put these pieces to use.

It looks like you might be ahead on the baby quilts but those babies keep coming! It is better to bind as you go. I think it is overwhelming to have a pile that all need the hand sewing.
