Construction Baby quilts

Last night I was able to get back to my sewing room for some much needed relaxation! The handsewing of binding on the first construction baby quilt is done and the label is on it. It's been given away as well! Love how it turned out and I'm so glad I picked up the last 3 panels when they were super cheap. They make really quick and easy baby quilt gifts.
I quilted the grader tablerunner for my dad last night too. I just did a little stipple all over it. It was done in 3 passes, so it's not real wide. I used the gray for the binding which really compliments it. Now I have some handwork to do again. This one is small, so it travels nicely.
While I was at it, I squared up and trimmed the 2nd construction quilt panel. I put the blue binding on it too, so now I just need to do some handwork and it will be ready for a gift when needed.
I was planning on working on the wedding quilt last night, but I just felt a lot better getting these couple of projects off my work table and now I can move on! The wedding quilt has the first border around each block and now I have to figure out how I'm going to put the quilt together with sashing.
