i'm making my brother one of these for his wedding.  it's supposed to be big enough for a queen sized bed (NEVER make this blanket that big!!). 

here's a pic of it a few weeks ago.  once it's completely done and i have some place to spread it out i'll take a pic of the whole thing.

(if that doesn't work, here's the link: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v373/arlip/Dsc04559.jpg)

i posted this question in the discussion forum but i figured i'd ask here too: what's the best way to fold one of these blankets?  i've just been kinda folding it in half a couple times and shoving it into whatever bag i was using.  any suggestions?

I guess that's how I do mine too. I fold it in half (6 points) then fold it in half again (3 points) and if it's not too big yet I can fold it again.

the problem with doing the folding-in-half-twice method is that, even at the '3-poin' stage, it's still huge!  too big to be stored nicely.  if it were lap or baby blanket sized, i think that method would suffice.  why oh why did i decide to make this project so huge??? oh yeah... only brother getting married... his wife-to-be is awesome soon... wanted something nice they could pass down to their children... blah blah blah...

a quilter over at the discussion/question forum (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254770.0) suggested folding it into thirds, then thirds again.  i may have to fold it in half yet again to get it into a box, but this sounds like the neatest method for doing it!

thanks for everyone's help!  i hope my brother and sister-in-law (to be) like it.  rather, they had BETTER like it (hehehe).
