Heirloom Baby Blankets

I have always loved the lacy look of baptismal/christening or heirloom blankets. My grandmother used to make blankets like this but I had never attempted one before.
I recently purchased a Leisure Arts crochet pattern book of “Keepsake Baby Afghans”. The designs are by Kay Meadows and they are beautiful!
Here is a picture of my first completed blanket from this book.

I will admit that I made a couple of mistakes in the edging, but now that I know better, I think it will be much easier next time.
Do any of you have a favorite keepsake Afghan pattern?
