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.

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.

P.S. How about "Firing on all Cylinders?" It sure has a lot of energy!

Above, I meant to say "It" sure is a pretty one:)

Donna said...

How about "Red Rover, Red Rover?" It's the first thought that popped into my mind! D~~~~

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 :) All of your quilts are beautiful!

For some reason the word "diamond" flashed when I saw the photo. So ................

Diamond in the Rough

Stephanie D. said...

It kind of reminds me of taffy candy twists. So, Scarlett Taffy? Ruby Twists?

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.

Venetian Blinds

Selvage Quilter said...

Oh, Mary! How are you ever going to decide now? What a lot of good ideas. Also: Red Carpet, Red Tape, Red Herring, In The Red, Paint the Town Red.

Selvage Quilter said...

Venetian blinds - that's cool. My sons would say, "What does that mean?" :)

Vicki W said...

I really like Venetian Blinds!

How's Chesty doing?

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

Starlight Mint.......... it reminds me of the Red and white mints my grandmother always had in a dish in her dining room.

Elaine Adair said...

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!

Zing-a-ring-ding a Red Fling

Kelly said...

Wow Mary, that is so pretty. I can't help with the name though, I'm not all that good at stuff like that!

Deb said...

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!

Diane said...

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

Trisha said...

My first thought was "Scarlet Streamers"

Jeanne said...

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.

Andee said...

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

meggie said...

"Well Red"

Chesty's view is lovely, no wonder he is happy!

Kookaburra said...

I keep thinking about checkerboards.
Love the quilt.
Karen

Lindi said...

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?

cindyquiltsOR said...

My naming would be: peppermint twist.

Good to see Chesty up and enjoying his window.

Char said...

That beautiful quilt makes me think of Red Licorice.

Patti D. said...

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.

Archaic Dome said...

I like Venetian Blinds!

My thought was Red Hots, like those little cinnamon candies. It looks like someone spilled a box! :)

Litamora's Patchwork and Quilting said...

Red October?
The quilt is absolutely stunning! Love it! You are such a great artist!

dee said...

candy apples- it's gorgeous!
Bowl of cherries
chocolate cherries
Looks like Chesty can't miss a thing from his viewpoint.

The Calico Cat said...

Anything but clever...
"Look at those diagonals." (Kinda tells the quilter what he/she is getting into...)

Owens Family Adventures said...

Chesty has a great view!! Lucky boy! The quilt is really nice too. :) 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!!

Irene said...

I see you already have a name for it but just wanted to tell you it is drop dead gorgeous!

hortenzita said...

Call it "Ezerkocka".
In Hungarian meens: Thousand of cubes.
Hugs from Hungary!

Hanne said...

Lovely quilt Mary !
I have a very soft spot for red as you know :-)

SuzyQSparkles said...

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 :)
