Comments:  I've been wanting to make one of these panels for a while - this one is worked from the centre out, and then you make several of them and connect them together into a blanket of some kind.  The finished block is about 9" square, so you wouldn't have to make many of them to get a baby blanket.  Worked all in white, I think it could be quite pretty, although I have seen some nice ones done in 3 or 4 colours.
