    I have a wall hanging and I'm giving to a friend. It is a special friend, and I want to convey that. We have known each other since we were in Middle School, so it's been a looooooooooong friendship. It's also romantic, so I need something good. I already considered "reunion" but decided against that word. Too cliche...

    so, ideas??

    I just spoke with him and he said it reminds him of stars/sky/night sky...

    I will post as soon as I can. It's made from the same blocks as a quilt I made some time ago. I will look for the link and post it. Only now it's 4 of the circle blocks.

    pictures? it is kind of impossible to name a quilt without seeing the quilt, the names usually 'go-with-the quilt' in some way be it personal or not

    I made my best friend a rail fence quilt and wanted to name it as well. We have been friends since we were 15 and we are both 55 now. I named it 'Tried but True', and felt that not only descirbed the quilt pattern but our friendship as well. She is the only one I would make a king sized quilt for w/matching shams. Last year I made her a shades of red Sawtooth Star with matching pillowcases.
    That one was simply titled 'You are a Shining Star'.

    How about naming it in Italian...so romantic... you did want something a little romantic...

    Cielo... is sky
    Notte... is night
    stelle... is stars
    luna is moon...
    per sempre...forever
    infiniti...infiinite

    I like Cielo di notte...Night sky...or just Cielo...because cielo also refers to "Heaven"...and that can imply how you feel about your relationship...

    Yes...the translation of Cielo..is the sky, Heaven, when someone says..grazie al cielo..it translates as thank Heavens...but il cielo di notte can also translate and the evening sky...so you are incorporating Sky/Heaven and Night...all in one....it can refer to your "evenings...that are like "Heaven"..can't get any more romantic than that.....

    Let us know what you finally decide, Esq

    BTW, I like the quilt in your avatar...what is the pattern...(and I also like the quilt for your fried...)
