While we're away.......

We'll be gone almost a week and we'll be pretty busy. So I thought I'd have you all do some work for me while we're gone.



I need a name for this year's Mystery Quilt. I've been calling it the Star Medallion but that's pretty lame.



Here's a jpg of the drawing of the whole quilt and a couple of the blocks that are sewn - can't give away the Mystery quite yet.




I thought I'd have a contest. Just give it your best shot at what I should call the quilt. This is a purely subjective contest. Enter your name in the comments section. I'll give it until the end of October - Halloween Day I'll pick a name.



And since I always miss my garden at this time of year, the winner will get a Cottage Garden kit. If I like 3 or 4 names, I'll keep them for future kits and the runner ups will get a Blessings Jelly Roll.



We're taking Pep's laptop to Market. If I can figure out his photo program and get the camera to work on it (big "ifs" for this not computer person) I'll blog from Market. But I will at least be able to read your entrys. This will be fun.
Better get back to sleep for awhile.
Keep quilting.

  6. How about:

    "Our House...with 3 cats in the yard". A shortened version of the song that has a chorus that goes "our house...is a very very very fine house, etc" and of course, and extra cat!

    OR:

    How about "Our house, is a very, very, very fine house"

    It is a lovely quilt...

  11. Hi Jan,
    The first thing that comes to my mind is "Seasons of the Heart and Home". Can you use the same name twice for two different things, a book and a quilt? I LOVE this design!

  14. Hi Jan, wish I was there with you at Market, since I am working on your Collector Series right now, actually found a very old kit on Ebay and just fondling those vintage fabrics make me think of "Seasons of the Past".

  15. "Family Ties" ...all the things on the quilt are what brings and keeps a family together...Heart, Home, Holidays, Remembering good times as kids (or making memories with grandchildren)..the appliques are the Family things (parts) and the conjoining stars are the Ties.

  17. I never even knew you had a blog. I just came upon you accidentally this afternoon. I immediately added you to my daily blog reads. Just yesterday I bought "another" one of your wonderful books, "We Gather Together", A Harvest of Quilts.

    I love your recent line, Blessings. Wow, what a "blessing" YOU are.

    I don't know about a name. Let's see....How about "HOME, Year-round" Or "Loving Home - always"

    I look forward to keeping up with your blog and your creations that so many enjoy.

    Sewing hugs and blessings...
