When I made my husband's Gears of War (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=398193.0) quilt, my son all but demanded that I make him a Halo quilt, so here it is. Instead of making a binding for this one, I just wrapped the fleece around to the front. Since I hand tied this one it just seemed to make more sense to me. I have no idea why, lol.

When trying to find a good Halo symbol/logo I came across this one in a few places. I'm not 100% sure it is one that is even used in the game but Thomas said that was the one he wanted because it shows the helmet. Apparently to a six-year-old, the helmet is everything, lol.

I used regular embroidery floss for the ties but am already seeing them come loose. Any suggestions for tha? I really don't want to use yarn, but I suppose if that is what is needed to make it last I'm up for it.
Thanks for looking!!

Splendid. I'm so glad your boy likes it.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Maybe some fray check on the knots? or retie them in square knots?

I hadn't thought of fray check! I used surgeons knots (?), just like a square but with an extra twist in it, if that makes sense. Then I did a square on top of that. I'm thinking I will break out the fray check though, just to be safe. Thanks!!!

OR keep the embroidery floss ties - after you re-tie them, machine stitch back and forth a couple of times over the middle (tied part) of them.  That should hold it.  Nice job on this one and the one for your daughter!!   Cheesy
