I haven’t managed to come up with a name for this one yet…
You all know how much I love to name quilts; it seems to help me with ideas and impetus. This one’s got me a bit stumped. Something to do with the colour? Teals, aquas, blue-greens, water and air colours… The design? Basket-weave, stars, chequerboard, flower baskets… The future owner? The lovely Cathy, my sister-in-law, hard-working education student and mother, with a heart of gold.
I have three more blocks done. I realised about 5 minutes into the second one that I’d mucked up the first one I showed. So I’m saving that for a cushion cover unless I run out of fabrics, in which case I’ll have to do a huge frog and unpick the entire thing. Here are three new basket-weave/star blocks and the central flower basket appliqué block. I’m waiting to do the 8 inch chequer-board blocks round this till I see how much fabric I have left from the 16 inch outer blocks.
If anyone out there has a stroke of genius for the name, do please share it. I don’t promise to use any suggestions, but you never know, you might end up giving me the inspiration I need 🙂
And Cathy, if you have a name for this quilt, I want to know!
POSTSCRIPT: Many thanks to Kate of Manic Mumdays, who provided the future name for this quilt. I give you Sea Glass!
