I've decided to name my quilts after their inspiration-- the future owner. This first one is for a baby born to a college friend of mine. I haven't seen this friend in a long time, but figured that any baby born in January in the upper midwest could use a quilt. The binding is Alexander Henry's "Apples + Pears", a favorite of mine. The yellow is striped, the pink is polka dotted, and it's a pretty, preppy quilt. Here's the back:
I love a pieced back. The blue is oxford shirting, and the yellow and pink are extras from the front. The wee bit of stripe in the corner has the label.
