name that piece! - part I

Carol Ludington, of the Shoreline Quilters Guild in Branford, CT., sent me this picture of a finished quilt she started last weekend in my Jump-starting Your Next Quilt workshop. She can't decide on a name and asked me which one of two I liked better. Since I liked both, I couldn't decide either. When I asked for permission to post the piece to my blog, she thought it would be a great opportunity to ask for name submissions from all the creative minds out there. I loved the idea!! - So -- take a look and either comment or e-mail me with what pops into your head for a title. I'll post the suggestions on Monday night and we'll see what Carol thinks. In the meantime, many of us are celebrating either Passover or Easter, so I hope you have a good holiday weekend. In either case, we will all have eaten too much, no doubt.

"reach" was the first thing that popped into my head with "reaching" not far behind.

"Pacman Escapes" (I like humorous titles)

I love Carol's piece, Rayna, especially the very graphic stripes.

I instantly saw the name "Hands all Around" pop into my head the minute i saw the quilt... Thats usually how i name mine, after i hang it on the wall and pick a name or what dear hubbie calls it from sitting on the sofa!!

This quilt reminded me of city skyscrapers, a blue sky and a tiny hidden garden where flowers welcomed the rain. So..Rain On City Flowers?

"Stairway to Heaven"

It reminds me of a tornado bearing down on a city... I'd call it "Storm Chaser"

"Chicken Tracks" is the first thing that came to mind.

Jeri P said...

Along the line of Chicken Tracks, the first thing I thought of was Chicken Scratches, incorporating both the chicken like tracks and the line motifs.

I see rays from the sun on flowers in a cityscape, so my suggestion would be...."Catching the Rays Downtown".

Springtime in Amsterdam, Watering the Tulips, or It's Clambake Time!

'It's a Jungle Out There'. It looks to me like an abstract of a city scape & wild plants.
