Very nice, both of them!

a question for you: how did you sew them up? I just finished a similar baby blanket project, and thought that sewing might come undone, so I crocheted the panels together, which left a ridge on one side.

Can you show me the underside? and how the sewn stitches look? That would be helpful to me.

TIA!

Woodi - yes, I sewed the strips together. It went together pretty cleanly because I slip the first stitch of each row.

Lucky you asked me now to take a picture, as I am giving it away for a charity auction this weekend! The red/white/blue one has already been turned over to Project Linus.

The technique I use is something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M_Us7yKChE
