Current WIPs

My daughter and I started working on a little patchwork bag today.  I let her choose the fabrics from the scrap bin and I think she did a great job!  We finished one side during my son's nap so hopefully we can get this finished up tomorrow.
I also started working on a quilt for my husband.  He has been asking when I was going to make one for him, but I never know what he will like so I have put off choosing a project.  When I saw this quilt on the Geared for Guys bloghop:
I showed it to my husband and he really liked it.  So I ordered the book (which has quite a few useful patterns in addition to this one).  I currently have my fabric cut and have started to piece things together.  I will admit, if I had known that it involved appliqué (didn't even occur to me!) then I probably wouldn't have bought the book.  I do not like appliqué.

The other problem. . . how to quilt it?  I don't know what I'm going to do.  I am not very comfortable with free motion, especially on a quilt this size.  Any ideas?
