    Well, I finally feel like I've made progress with this quilt! It seems like it has gone really slowly, but I guess since I had to do embroidery, then applique...then piecing...and try to figure out what I wanted to do as I went along...anyway I did get some of the blocks sewn together today. DH was happy, but not as excited as I felt he should be, so I'm sharing with ya'll instead.

    I haven't sewn down the "Our Little Boy" applique banner for the top yet..doing that now. I think I will do a 1" border with the peach, then a 3" outer border with the frogs, then bind with the red. What do ya'll think?

    Isn't that frog fabric the cutest??? I couldn't believe I found it..ran across it the other day and ordered it from Thousands of Bolts. It is just darling!

    Here are the border/binding options along with the froggie fabric for the border and back.

    Inner border- peach? binding- red?

    Very very very adorable!! I love it all. I think the frog fabric is great, and it's fun to see the DJ blocks in there. What I like most about that is that that's a special feature that only "those in the know" would really understand!!

    Holy Moly! This is adorable. I love the diaper size and the face on the baby is too funny! What a wonderful quilt.

    Can't wait to see the peach border and of course the banner!

    Q/C...the Little Girl is long gone...to her new home. I told my friend that my one rock solid requirement for her to get them for the price I quoted her was that I get to have a pic of the new baby and the quilt together. The girl's birthday is the 15th of this month and "Mom" is a stickler for adhering to not getting gifts too early...so I'll be getting a pic of that one soon in its new home.
