I think it looks great! you have certainly been given many options, so go with which is comfortable for you. Hope your friend and crew to be are doing well. No pressure on the other quilt, these things work themselves out when they are ready. Nice of fabric to be so kind and wait for us to catch up! LOL! Either way you decide to go we would still love to see the finished product. BTW, love the little toe peek!

I think he'll like it, too! :) Don't think he'll be using it this summer though (not sure exactly how heavy its gonna be after its done, batting and all). But I'm sure he'll put it through good use during those nasty Minnesota winters!

If I have the time and money I'll go for the handmade binding. If not, go for the alternatives.

Guess my very pregnat friend gonna be using that baby quilt sooner than I thought. She had her baby almost three hours ago! Strange thing was...I had a dream she had given birth to her son and then five seconds after I woke up Mom said that she had gotten a call saying that she was going into labour (for REAL this time! LoL) That was an exciting 10 hours, but that's another story. ;)

Denim always reminds me of tuffness.....Stitch around the edges 1/2 to one inch and let the ends, fray..kinda goes with the theme on denim! and wow how fast is that!!! cut the batting close to the stitching before fraying.
Of course that would give it a more casual look....just an idea.

Offically, I'm the child's godmother, but I could of swore my friend (the father) called me "Auntie Sam" when they brought the baby back from the operating room. LoL.

I thought about doing the frayed edges but I ended up not wanting to go for that look and decided just to make a standard patchwork quilt. :) Which reminds me I have to work a little extra tonight since I didn't get to work on the quilt yesterday since I was at the hospital all day and I was too mentally exuasted anyways to work on it.

By the way, how should finish the quilt (not the binding part, but when you sandwich the quilt together...can't think of what that particular step is called). I've only made one complete quilt and that one was tied and I don't think tieing it would be the best way for a denim quilt...plus, that'd be a lot of ties for a 60x80 quilt...

Are you talking about quilting it? If you ar in a hurry, you could quilt around the squares, or quit through the middle of each on a diagonal which woud make an "x" in each block. Or if you are machine quilting, just an overall swirly stitch would look nice. Basically, its whatever floats your boat. I love the colors--anything blue, thats me!
