    My two latest

    I've called the first one "Scrap-tical Illusions" made with lots of scraps and Bonnie Hunter's Strip Twist pattern. This is a gift for my nephew. The second one is a birthday gift for my daughter's girlfriend in Jan made from a jelly roll and the Summer in the Park pattern from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. I need help with a name for the orange one. I was thinking Orange/Lemon/Lime Sherbert. Let me know what you all think.

    "Scrap-tical illusions" is GREAT! Puts me in mind of running a knife edge through chocolate in white icing. I must have food on my mind. lol

    How about "Citrus Wrap" for the second one? Love the colors!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    They're both great! We have a sweet (candy) over here called 'Sherbet Lemons'.
    'St. Clements' is a non-alcoholic cocktail made with orange juice and lemon (named after a British nursery rhyme), so it could be 'St Clements with lime'.
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    Both are very nice!! The scrappy has great movement with your placement! Tropical fruit or tropical paradise?

    No help with names, although the suggestions you already have are good ones! I love both these quilts!

    They are both great. Colorful and sure to be cuddly too. I might call your second quilt " a twist of citrus"
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    Both are beautiful. I especially love the first one.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Rainbow Sherbert was my thought also for second quilt. Really like both of them. The colors are marvelous. So cheery.

    BEAUTIFUL!!! I just downloaded the pattern for the first one because I don't already have ENOUGH projects!! My 15 year old daughter suggested "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" as a name for the second quilt.
