Friend's quilt needs a name.................

At lunch one day, quite awhile ago, my friend was telling me about a quilt she had made and got quilted but still had to sew the binding on................I told her to get into it..........on Tuesday we talked about her calling out today after she finished work..........she turned up and she brought the quilt along to show me.............


..............she brought along the binding also and I decided to give her a hand to put the binding on................it is a bigger check and she was thinking originally to cut it on the diagonal but that was straining our brains to much to work out if we had enough material so we just cut as normal and I sewed it on (finally I have done some machine sewing this week) and tonight she is going home to start hand sewing the binding down.......


..............then she saw one of my quilt labels and thought it was lovely and asked where did I get it ......I had a spare so gave her one of my great Anni Downs Hatched and Patched quilt labels...........she was so happy.........

(sorry about the blothces on the lens it has left some spots on the pic)

.......now for the problem we need your help to decide on a name for the quilt...........please comment and leave a quilt name suggestion I will pass them onto my friend..........hopefully she is at home with a drink stitching away..........

  3. Gosh, I love the colors. It glows, almost like sun and shadow, though that's a name for another design. It also looks like mosaic floor tiles...or a "path to somewhere". LOL well that's not much help, is it!

  5. Just when I saw this quilt, I thought about a french Poet Paul Eluard who said "the Earth is blue as an orange". It is long but... ;)

  6. I'll first write down the name and then look if others thought of it. It reminds me of autumn (in europe). The colours are similar. I think autumn would be a nice name for this quilt.

  7. My first idea was Indian Summer. My husband told me about it when he visited the US, about the heat and the colours en the days getter shorter, the evenings with sunsets and darkblue skies. This is what I think an Indian Summer looks like.

  8. Lovely quilt, nothing like getting a "kick in the butt" from a kind friend. LOL.
    I think "Quilt with a View" as it looks like a window in the middle.
    You will have to keep on to her to finish the binding and take another photo.
