    Mine would be "So Many Fabrics, Not Enough Time"

    The quilt police might lock me up but I never worry about my quilts being squared. I'm not entering them in a competition or show; they are going to people who love me and my quilts!

    No one I ever gave a quilt to said, "Oh, no thanks, that's not square." Maybe "Love and Pieces" for a quilt shop.

    That would be stressful for me if I had to square it up perfectly. I quilt to relieve the stress, not add stress!

    I work at a LQS called "Caroline's Cottage Cottons", in a 1870 brick cottage. The house next door is for sale. My DH said, "We should buy it and start a quilt shop called Cindy's Cottage Cottons." Heehee

    I would NEVER want to own a quilt shop! I love working in one, but would not want the responsibility and long hours that go with owning one.

    If I were to open up a quilt shop, only dreaming here. Somehow I would incorporate a bed and breakfast and call it ....
    QUILT YOUR DREAMS Bed and Breakfast. Speaking for myself when I am out shopping at quilt stores, the clock does not mean anything. lol Trouble with my theory not many understand a true quilter.

    I think, "Your Stash" would be a fun name.
    Like, "Where did your get that fabric?"
    "Your Stash".
    Or, Where you been shopping?"
    "Your Stash".
    "What is your favorite fabric store?"
    "Your Stash".
    "That is a beautiful quilt, you must of paid a arm and leg for material."
    "Nope, was shopping in "Your Stash".
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    Mine are never square either, but I would have to call my shop something like: Never Straight or Always Crooked
    Since I can never cut or sew a straight line!

    I like the never square. That is one of my problems too. It seems so hard for me to square anything up much less a whole quilt.

    MY favorite all time quilt store name is "Cotton Ball" it is in Morro Bay, California.
    My Daughters' favorite is "Cotton and Choclate" in Thousand Oaks, Caifornia

    IMHO "Your Stash" is a great name.....I might have to travel just to shop there !!!!!!!

    Exactly....no one's ever said they didn't want them because they weren't "right" in whatever way.....PLUS, the whole point of your boarders is to square up your quilts....at least that was what I was taught!

    I always thought mine might be "A Time to Sew" as in Ecclesiastes 3:7 - There is a time to tear apart and a time to sew together. I also thought of "Dorcas' Purple Cloth". Jesus raised her from the dead but she was also a seller of purple cloth. I can't find the line right now.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.
