Baby quilt quilted...now for the binding

I got the baby quilt quilted yesterday, so now need to piece the binding and put it on. I think I will go scrappy and use the colors surrounding the quilt blocks. I need to make a label too, but want to wait til the baby is born. They know it is a girl, but I want to wait for a name. This panto went pretty quickly and is nice for a baby, I think. I haven't done this one before.
I had to take my car in this morning as the check engine light came on last week. It is running fine, so I hope it isn't anything big. I am going on a family camping trip next weekend, so want to make sure nothing's wrong.

I am not sure what I am working on today...I have a quilt of my mom's I am going to quilt next so I might get that on there. I just don't know.

Don't forget to stop by Sewmeows for her great giveaway. She is adding something new everyday...Kitty Buttons were added today!

I love that hot pink for a baby quilt and the backing is so fun. I think the scrappy binding will be perfect.
