    I have to name my quilt

    and I'm terrible at it. I will be entering it at my guild show and I'm filling out the form.
    It was for my son and DIL's 6th wedding anniversary.

    I can't upload the photo - it is gold and cream

    I don't name my quilts. When my local quilt show asks for a quilt's name, I just fill something in, perhaps the name of the pattern. Or you can just put "gold and cream quilt." or make up something silly.

    Is it pieced, appliquéd, pattern name? Without seeing it, the only name that comes to mind is Gold Rush.

    Thank you for your suggestions = all cute. Gold Digger probably wouldn't be appropriate since it's a wedding anniversary quilt, but I'll remember that name for a future quilt.

    Not sure why the photo upload keeps failing. It is a machine pieced and quilted piece.

    Is the picture a maximum of 800 pixels on the largest side?

    I don't deliberately name my quilts but during making as I make more than one at a time I do give them names then . Like the twisty thing or now for the purple job etc .not real names but descriptions of the quilt.

    Seeing as it is an anniversary quilt, how about "Happily Ever After"?

    The traditional 6th anniversary gifts are sugar or iron. The modern gifts are wood, candy, amethyst

    http://anniversariesbyyear.com/

    You could name it based on those traditions. Some names that come to mind are
    "spun sugar"
    "gilded fondant"
    "rock candy"
    "butterscotch and cream"

    These names are just based on the colors you used. Could probably come up with more if you listed the pattern too.

    Additionally I have not named all my quilts. I have just called them by their pattern name when entering like Batik Sampler or Disappearing 9 patch.
