What’s in a name?

By May 1, 2009March 31st, 2020Blog

I feel in love with this little quilt when I saw it last year. I knew I would make one like it one day. Em’s scrap bag needed a bunch of scrap baskets. Don’t you think? So with the above quilt as inspiration. I set to work. I feel in love with Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup new fabric line. I thought it would make for some fun scrap baskets. Here is my rendition. I’m planning on binding it in orange. What do you think?

I am looking for a fun name for my quilt. If you have a catchy one I’d love to hear it.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

    I am not the best at catchy names but I bet one of our fellow bloggers can come up with name. Love the quilt! It is so bright and cheery! Your binding choice will add to it.

    Hi Em, what a great quilt to fall in love with, and what a great version of it you have created!!
    Looking at it I’m hear the “CandyMan” song in my head…remember that one *VBS* Hugs, Finn

    Ohh..love your baskets.. the are just like sherbet or sorbet ice … so I suggest Sherbet Baskets…:o)
    Those baskets are LOVELY!!!! :o)

  • Teresa says:

    I thought of Spring when looking at your quilt and since today is the first day of May, I think you should name it May Day.

  • Kim says:

    This is very nice, especially like the border that you designed for it. A Happy May Day quilt! I like the May Day name, too.

    Wow! Love it. Orange is one of my favorite colors, too!!! The song with the refrain: “Good Day SunShine” comes to mind. If it were a quilt here in florida I’d call it something related to Orange Juice or the Sunshine.

    I really like your scrappy version. How about “Weaved from scraps” ,,,

    What sweet baskets! Love the ric rac handles. Such bright and colourful fabrics – you have given a modern twist to a traditional design.

    Great border! Amazing how two quilts that are so much alike can look so different.

    I like Ems scrapbaskets. Cute! And they are.

  • Rose Marie says:

    Love both versions and when I see your baskets, they remind me of all the goodies you find at a farmer’s market in the summer. What about Summer Pickin’s.
