    I think "in" looks best - cute quilt by the way :)

    Much better facing in -- otherwise too many standing on their heads! LOL

    I think a big confusion is what is facing in and what is facing out. To me facing in is when they're standing on their heads. Their faces are closer to the inside of the border. I can't see how that would be considered facing out.

    My thoughts exactly!

    I'd say it's facing out because although their faces are closer to the inside of the quilt, they are looking (facing) towards the outside of the quilt, therefore they are "facing out" :wink:

    If you had enough fabric, have you ever considered a compromise between "in" or "out" -- sideways? Each side w/ the characters running parallel to the quilt? It's all up to you -- there's no wrong way!!

    That would be cute -- 2 sides each way!

    LOVE that border fabric.. Of course I think those vintage prints make the cutest baby quilts... Let the baby see them facing the right way. and then let us see it all finished!

    To me, it looks as though the little kids have their backs turned to the quilt when they face out. I like them facing in, but it is just personal preference. Very cute!

    Holba it doesn't matter if they are facing in or out. Follow your gut. IMHO the most important thing is to be consistent, I.e., make sure all borders face the same way. Gramily

    Thanks everyone!!!! You are all so nice!! I love this site and have not quilted for 3 years because of health issues. So, I have just read all your words almost daily and vicariously have enjoyed quilting!! Well, now I know facing in and out mean different things to different people. So... I looked at lots of quilt patterns and just decided to DO IT and I did them "facing out" which was the second picture. Although the border is cute - I have changed the blocks twice and then changed the sqares between blocks so I hate the quilt and then because I made the borders too big there is no longer the backing fabric I had bought so I ditched work in the morning yesterday and bought new backing fabric. I will post when done - this is the first quilt I have not liked and it is for my first grandchild!! However, I am sure when done it will be okay. So again thanks!!!!!
