Help me name this quilt – please!

I’m writing up instructions for this quilt and I need a name for it. I’ve been calling it my red/beige scrap quilt but I need something a little more exciting – any suggestions?

And just because I couldn’t resist, this is a better shot of Chesty’s view from our front window.

  1. Hi Mary,I like the red color, how about: “Ruby Slippers: There’s No Place Like Home.”The quilt looks like roads rising up, so how about: “May the Road Rise Up to Greet You.” Or, “A Merry Heart is Good Medicine.” I love that one because my mom’s name is Mary Hart.Or, “Happy as a Dog with Five Tails.”Or, “Fun and Games.”Or, “Ace in the Hole.”Help! Now I can’t stop thinking of names for your quilt!!I like them all of these names and I may use some when the right quilt comes along, but I don’t see why we can’t share. Let me know what you decide to name your quilt. I sure is a pretty one.

  2. Reminds me of a “summer picnic”.You know, the blanket you put on the ground.It’s beautiful!I’ve been following your site for a while now. I’m taking a quilting class, so I’m just a beginner. But your blog inspires me πŸ™‚ All of your quilts are beautiful!

  3. I like your quilt. It reminded me of White and Red Blood Cells. Something that all people need. Just like all the Heartstrings quilts you finish up. But since I a a Diesel Tech Student… I like the other suggestion of Firing on all Cylinders.Carolyn/Silkquilter01@yahoo.com

  5. it kinda looks like “Chutes & Ladders” to me. Chutes being the half square triangles and the ladders are the ladders are the 4 patches.

  6. I don’t know where this came from, but as it loaded on the page, it said “Jiggles” … besides that’s short and easy to print on a label! LOL — Cute quilt!

  7. I love love love that quilt. I would call it “Toffee Apples” the ruby reds reminds me of the sweet apple on a hot day at the fair!

  8. Mary, that’s a pretty quilt. Lots of great suggestions for a name, my choice would be “Keep On Dancin'”. It’s been a long day! Best wishes, Diane

  9. Looks like there are a lot of great suggestions for you already. Licorice & Taffy? It's a terrific quilt whatever you call it. What a lovely view for Chesty. I'm so glad he's back to normal.

  10. How about Candy Cane Square Dance! Definately reminds me of candy canes or stick candy…so second choice would be Stick Candy Picnic!

  11. Nice design ad fabric selections!“Red Rover, Cross Over”“Criss Cross”“Checkers”“Square dance”“All A-buzz”“Busy market place”Maybe a title based around your inspiration?

  12. My name suggestion for the quilt pattern is Sparkling Bows. Thanks for keeping up your blog. It gives me something nice to read every day.

  13. candy apples- it’s gorgeous!Bowl of cherrieschocolate cherriesLooks like Chesty can’t miss a thing from his viewpoint.

  14. Chesty has a great view!! Lucky boy! The quilt is really nice too. πŸ™‚ As I am only half way through my first cup of coffee my mind is a blank as to what to call it. I do like the first suggestion though.Have a great day!!dawn

  15. For some reason, this quilt makes me think about times spent donating blood, so, all of my names revolve around that…“Donations of Love”“Donations from the Heart”“Blood Love”“Blood Donations”“Do Your Part, Give Some Heart”You get the idea. Sorry if this is too morbid for you, it just reminds me of the tubes of blood that are empty, then full of love and life as we do our part and donate from the heart!Suzy πŸ™‚
