    I just got told on another board my quilt name didn't "sound" like a "quilt name" so now I am 2nd guessing myself. The fabrics are shades of pink and the main fabric on front is hot pink with little black dresses on mannequins on it. That particular fabric is very glittery. I decided to go a different route (other than pink in the title) because the quilt is for my daughter and I am making it while she is away at outdoor school as a surprise. All the kids get nicknames at the camp and my daughter's nickname given to her by the counselor was Glitter LOL I just thought it was a great coincidence and wanted to have Glitter in the title.

    So I posted on this other forum a selection of five names:

    1. Glitter
    2. Glitz & Glitter
    3. Glitter & Glitz
    4. Glam & Glitter
    5. Glitter & Glam

    someone else suggested: Glitz, Glitter & Glam

    Anyway -- I wasn't quite sure what the person meant by it didn't "sound" like a "quilt name" . . . ???

    All would work--I like them all from the description of the quilt and your daughter's nick.

    There are no quilt police. I like "Glitz, Glitter & Glam."

    So exactly what does a quilt name sound like?

    As with all things, beauty is in the eye (in this case, ear) of the beholder.

    I don't know what they mean either. I think any of the names are great. I kind of like Glitz, Glitter & Glam.

    Thanks! I am not sure what a "quilt name sounds" like either LOL I thought you just named them from your heart.

    Judy LOL I am glad there are no quilt police or apparently I would be in jail right now!!

    Thanks for helping me also decide the name --

    Glitz, Glitter & Glam!!!

    Sounds like you you met with the quilt police there. Any of the names you
    chose would be fine. It's your quilt and you can name it whatever you want.

    I think so EasyPeezy. I think she was upset cuz I had asked for help with names and I didn't choose a "pink" inspired name. I honestly didn't mean to offend anyone. Like I said earlier, I just decided to go a different route after I found out what nickname the counselor gave my daughter.

    Too emotional right now LOL Missing my daughter since she is away.

    I like Glitter and Glam - sounds rich and fun. I wouldn't put any emphasis on that "not sounding like a quilt name" comment. Whoever said that probably would call it the pink quilt with mannequins for [name]

    It's supposed to be creative and fun. U go girl!

    The quilt is yours to name as you see fit. I like Glitter and Glam. I'm sure your daughter will be thrilled to have a quilt with her "name" in it.

    This reminds me of my sister making fun of me cause I usually give all my fur kids people names-K-Dee, Chelsea, Daisy, Penny, Sam, Dudley, etc. She really hates the name of the pup in my avatar-Krissy. I named her after her!

    Any name for a quilt works if you like it!

    That reminds me of a family who named their dog Bob. One day they
    invited us for a get together and another guest named Bob happened to be
    there. Well, the dog went nameless that day.

    I like the glitz glitter and glam..
    and really, what difference does it make to somebody else what YOU name YOUR quilt...

    We knew some people who named a dog "Uno" so whenever somebody asked the name of the dog the answer was "You know"
