Thanks, everyone. It didn't take that long because it was so much fun to make. I played with the layout a while because it was going to just have Mrs. Tiggywinkle on it, but as I looked at all the patterns in the book, I changed my mind.

It was made in one piece and the back is plainer with a basic pattern of the squares on the front and little knitted footprints in the center.
The back was very necessary since the back side of the intarsia is very messy.

I appreciate everyone comments sooo much.

I bought the book online, so if you're interested in buying it, it's out there.

That is absolutely the cutest baby blanket that I have ever seen! And the knitting is fantastic. Can you post a picture of the back?

I have one picture of the back, and a not-so-good close up of the baby feet.

Thanks for the 'back' pics. That would be a great baby afghan on its own! One more question: Did you tack the two sides together in any other places than the border?

I did tack the front and back together, I believe just at the corners of the different motifs. It's only been a few months, and there's a lot I don't remember about this.
