    Never thought of naming my quilts, just my sewing machines. Some quilts were a bear to finish, if I named them I don't think I would be kind. I gift my quilts, so they are called "Bon's new house quilt", Bizzie's graduation quilt. I am just doing the first one that I will keep, I call it the farmer's wife. Great idea though!!!

    Why? It's a quilt. The sky is the limit. You had to have some idea as to why you made a particular pattern or used a color. How does it make you feel. No fear here! Name it what you like about it or what it reminds you of. Make it fun.
    peace

    EDIT: As for AZ Jane, You will find naming them will be a lot of fun if you start doing it. it is like naming a work of art.

    Interesting - never thought about naming them. That could be fun - Imagine giving a quilt with a little card that gives the care and love for quilt with a name.

    I name them because they are my "art". Last month my BIL and SIL were here and looking at a top I had just completed for their daughter for graduation. They asked, "Does it have a name? Are you making a label like the others?"

    I told them I was considering it and they told me I "had" to because everyone loved that part. They like seeing the name and figuring out why I gave it that name. My labels have the quilt name, for , by Mary, occasion, year.

    Btw, our cars have names including the trucks. My favorite name is Uncle Jesse. It is a 1968 F150. My kids thought it looked just like Uncle Jesse's on Dukes of Hazard.

    Me too. I've never felt compelled to give a quilt a name.

    I don't name mine either, but using the "Miss" series sounds like fun.
