Moderne Log Cabin: intarsia

I am now finally working on Block 9 of Sarah's afghan, the Mason-Dixon Moderne Log Cabin blanket. I've been thinking of it as two blocks, but according to the pattern, it is one block knit using intarsia to join the colors. (The colors in the top photo are not true.)

This may take some time. I have to knit 99 garter stitch rows for this block. But it makes for good movie-watching knitting, and the temperatures are still cool enough to make me thankful I can drape it over me and stay warm while I knit.

Is this the last block? It sounds like the size of a small blanket by itself.

Yes, Tracy, it's the last block, then I have to knit the edge. I think I'd like to do an I-cord edge, but the pattern calls for a flat garter stitch edge and that's what Sarah says she wants.
