Making blocks for pillows and binding for quilts!

I have been a busy bee yesterday and today. I have been making quilt blocks for some new couch pillows. I plan on using them once the living room is painted. I made them ahead so I can put them on my Hinty and quilt them as I finish some charity quilts for a Military retreat at a local Mission. I would like to have eight so that means I have to make sixteen blocks.  I am going with blues and browns and will probably go with a warm tan on the walls. I have also been making a ton of binding for those charity quilts. I used to hate to make binding, it scared me to death but I think I have finally got it down.  I watched enough binding tut's I should have it down anyway! I love Pinterest for that and Utube as well. It's like having private lessons right in your sewing room.  Well have a great Easter holiday everyone! Blessings!
