    I've seen a lot of postings on here but very few have "named" their quilt or given it a title i.e. GARDEN PARTY, TO THE GARDEN etc.

    So......the question is "Do You Name Your Quilt"?

    No, I make mine to give away and they're definitely not the "FANCY" ones that I've seen on this board!

    Yes, I name all the quilts that I design. It helps when you enter them in shows, and if you want to write up a pattern/instructions for them.

    I name my quilts even if I didn't design it. I put the name of the quilt on the label.

    Most of mine have similar names: "Finally Finished" - "Pain in the tuches" - "Relieved it's done" etc. lol

    I try to name mine most often referencing the name the original pattern designer had and adding something "original". Also, trust me, have no intention of having my quilts in a show. With that said, I truly admire some of the beautiful quilts that are in shows.

    I have named EVERY quilt I have ever made. I don't have any kids so I think it is fun to be able to name something in this world.
