how adorable!  cute colors.  i don't know a lot about quilting, so is your design based on the log cabin quilt block?  that's a really neat idea either way! Grin

Thank you for the awesome comments everyone!! Smiley The afghan worked up pretty quickly. It's become one of my staple baby shower gifts, along with the Star afghan, although this log cabin one is quicker.

Vanna White has this pattern in her new book for crocheting! I have been dying to try it but have too many projects in the works at the mo!  Was it confusing or did you like making it?

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Looking back, it was a little confusing for me (I'd really only crocheted granny squares until then), but as long as your good at evenly spacing the stitches on the sides of the squares, then you should be good. Oh, and you don't have to buy Vanna White's book to get the pattern....just Google "crocheted baby log cabin afghan pattern" & you SHOULD find it really easily. Smiley

Well, Joann had the book half off, so I spent six bucks and got it along with a bunch of other patterns.  I have been getting much better about patience and spacing stitches correctly.  I want to give this a go!  Thank you Smiley
