Help me name this quilt!


Help! I'm at a loss to name this quilt! Send me your ideas. If I pick your name, I'll send you two of my patterns; you can check them out on my website, www.bluemoonriver.com. (The block-of-the-month patterns all count as separate patterns.)

This quilt features 16 applique blocks done in shades of pink and green. I'm doing needleturn applique, but it could be done with fusibles. It is all done except for the borders, which have similar applique to the sashings, and will be scalloped. After I finish the borders, I'm going to hand quilt it. I'm hoping to have it all done later this year so I can offer the patterns in 2009.

So put your thinking caps on and send me your best ideas (in the comments section), please! I'll decide on the winning name and post the winner here on May 1, 2008.

  6. I've got a few ideas . . .

    Primarily Petals
    Passion for Petals
    Prolific Petals
    Perpetual Petals
    Plentiful Petals

    I've realized that the bad thing about online dictionaries is that you can't just scan the list of words that begin with a certain letter! :-)

  8. SWEET 16!

    ISN'T THAT A PERFECT NAME FOR IT? I THINK SO. IT IS SWEET AND DELICATE, LIKE MY OLDEST GIRL WAS WHEN SHE TURNED 16. I HAVE 4 MORE TO DO THAT, LOL! I LOVE YOUR EXQUISITE CREATIVE WAY TO USE THAT SAME COLOR, BUT IN DIFFERENT SHADES, IT IS STUNNING. LOVE YOUR STYLE.

    "Pretty in Pink" is my suggestion! only second to Tickled Pink, suggested above!

    Spring Fever, Summer Breeze. I like someone's suggestion of Cotton Candy also. The perfect name will come to you in the middle of the night.
    Congratulations on another great design!

  26. Susan, I haven't seen a bad idea in the bunch - I think you're going to have a HARD time choosing a name!!! :)

  27. Since I see it in different colors, pink in the name didn't come to mind. But since it's "splendid" how about,

    Spring Splendor
    Flowering Splendor

  31. Petal by petal, leaf by leaf from this quote by Susan Coolidge (a children's author): “Slow buds the pink dawn like a rose From out night's gray and cloudy sheath; Softly and still it grows and grows, Petal by petal, leaf by leaf.” (see http://www.readseries.com/auth-bc/coolbio.html)
