Here's some basic log cabin instructions that are really all you need I think. That being said I think the book is worth it. I got it first from the library then decided I wanted it.

And here's the pattern (free) for the Moderne Log Cabin.

You got me going on the blanket, Dollyce. Since "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" I copied your color choices also. They are not going to know the gender of the baben before it's birth.

I'm also really tired, tired and TIRED of pink! Both DGD's love pink. They gravitate towards it like I do black.

He's really cute! Teehee. Aren't those the colors that they say babies can see real well from early on? Very nice gift.

I hadn't heard that! Good to know stuff like that! You're ahead of me in the latest baby studies! I've been out of the loop!

Thank you Dollyce & Jan for the information and the free patterns. I am going to order the Mason Dixon Book - My resolution from the other thread is to not purchase anymore yarn until I finish a few of the several projects I have waiting to be done- but it does not include not buying knitting books, magazines and more needles The book will be a birthday present to myself for tomorrow.

You won't regret it! Great book, with numerous log cabin patterns, great directions, plus lots of designs for the home! I love the baby bib pattern, too!

I happily own both Mason-Dixon books!

I really do like your beautiful floor mat for g'grand son. Yes those are supposed to be the colors a new baby sees best.

I could/should live to be a great-great gramma! When my great grandson is 20, I'll only be 82! Very do-able with the longevity genes in our family, the non-smokers that is. The smokers die young.
