Naming quilts

Where do you guys get this stuff from? I can't believe how many creative names you all came up with? Karen gave me an excellent suggestion - I created a list with the names I didn't use for future quilts.

While they were all great, I narrowed it down to my favorites:

Zing-a-ring-ding a Red Fling
Venetian Blinds (this one got a lot of votes from other readers!)
Red Rover, Red Rover
"Well Red"
Ruby Slippers: There's No Place Like Home
"May the Road Rise Up to Meet You."

and then I chose.....

Red Rover

It's not quite as creative as some of the other names but I'm going to take baby steps here.

I think that is a very good choice. Have a great day.

I'm excited that you chose the name I suggested from amongst so many great names! It's certainly a very pretty quilt! Also, I meant to mention that I love Chesty's view from the window and your "Autumn in Minneapolis" banner. What beautiful views! D~~~~

Love Chesty's view!

I have a hard time naming quilts. These are some very clever names. I really like the name that you chose.

That's a good choice, especially if you have to refer often to the quilt; you don't want a long name!

Now you have to make a bunch more quilts to use the other names:)

Great name, and SHORT!

I'm laughing about you keeping the names not used, for future quilts! I LOVE naming my quilts - the last chance for it to develop it's personality! lOL

I liked the Venetian Blind suggestion and my second favorite was Red Rover ... I think it's "personality" suits that name! Good call, Mary ;-)

I'm not very good at naming quilts either! I have a "plaid" a "star" a "red/white" etc. "Red rover" is a good name and the quilt itself is stunning!
