Do you name your quilts?
Yesterday I offered my daughter one of two quilts. She moved into a new home recently. Though the quilts are very different, I thought either of them would be a great addition to her family room.
She wondered why the Delectable Mountain quilt (lower) has a name and the Stacked Coins quilt (upper) does not. I didn’t have a good reason for her. Mostly it’s because I didn’t think of a name for it yet.
Do you name your quilts? How do you decide? When you do name, is it based on the pattern or design, or the colors used, or the person who will own it? My quilt names come from all of those. Untied is named for both the center fabric, as well as the uninhibited way I created it.
Moonlight Waltz reminds me of the colors of shadows in moonlight, while the pattern of pale squares within the middle blue border reminds of dancers waltzing around a ballroom.
Last night before I fell asleep, I did think of a name for the Stacked Coins. When I make the label, I will call it “If I Had A Nickel…”
And by the way, she chose Still Climbing Mountains. Because we are.
