Watching Otto's back

What a blast -- I finished piecing the second of four panels on my baby quilt (for little Otto, who was born yesterday!), and then started to work on the back. First, I made him a house with a dragon in the doorway and gumballs on the roof (forgive the blurriness, please...).
And of course, he should have his name on the quilt. What name could be easier to piece than "Otto"?
Time for dinner now, but when I get back to it, he'll have stars and maybe a sun (just thought of that!), plus a tree... and his name ... and ????

I forget, which is the quilt back and which is the front? :)

I have a friend who always had backs that were as fancy as the fronts. I think it's neat but usually do simpler pieced backs. I think it works really well on baby quilts because you see both sides as you wrap the baby in it.

Most likely Otto will treasure the quilt. I love how the gumballs look so life-like!

I'm waiting for the big picture! Otto will love the bright colors right now, and as he grows, he will enjoy the details and learn the words and be glad for you!
