This is from Mason-Dixon Knitting and is most of the Moderne Log Cabin Baby Blanket for my niece/nephew to be.  I changed the edging from that suggested in the book to an attached/applied I-cord.  I also changed some of the bigger rectangles because I wanted to avoid the intarsia.  Disclaimer:  blanket is much more rectangular and even in real life then it appears in the picture!

I used Shine Sport from Knitpicks and US 5 needles.  I wish I would have kept better track of how much yarn I used!  The pictures are pre-blocking and washing.  I'm going to wait to do that until its closer to the baby shower to do that!

That is so gorgeous. A friend of mine just mentioned someone is expecting and I just might have to make one of those.
Great job!
How do you apply/attach the i-cord?
And I'm crazy jealous. I can't wait to get into ravelry!

Very nice!  I've been wanting to try that pattern. 

Did you like Shine yarn?  I've heard good things about it.  I might order some with my next KnitPicks order.

Kelliz:  I do like the shine sport.  I think it's very soft and machine washable! I cannot say how it holds up over time or through multiple washings yet though. 

iheartzombies:  The edging really did finish this, without the edge it looked a little bit incomplete. I followed directions out of a book, but there are plenty of good explanations online! This one from Keyboard biologist is great because of the included photos!  And I LOVE ravelry!  It's such a genius concept.
