Name This Quilt

Hello Everyone,
 
Yay, the borders are on!  All two of them plus the flange.
 


The little yellow flange is only 1/2"....and it packs a punch. 

 
I cut the borders to finish at 8" because I want to quilt "plate" feathers in that space.  I'm also doing it to drive myself crazy, because plate feathers take me a fair bit of time to quilt.  I quilted them on my Country Sunshine and Heartfire quilts and I love them. 
 



 
I learned that I can't let my mind wander when I quilt this design.  I'll have to do my homework ahead of time, and practice on paper so I can get it right.

I was contacted at the beginning of the week by a designer who told me she already designed a quilt called Red Sky at Night.  I immediately said I would change the name of my quilt.  I did a search on the Internet and discovered there are many quilt designs called Red Sky(s) at Night.....but I couldn't find the quilt of the designer who brought it to my attention.  Come to find out, she had named her quilt Red Stars at Night. 

Yesterday, Mr. Joe said I should name it Country Starburst, which I thought was perfect!  After searching the Internet, I found there are a lot of Country Starburst quilt designs.  So it is time to have a contest to name this quilt.  You have between now and Monday 2/17/20 to give this quilt a name.  In the comment section, tell me your thought on the perfect name.  Or send me an email at sewnwildoaks@gmail.com with your idea.  Mr. Joe, Mazey, and I will select the winner.  Your prize will be any Sew'n Wild Oaks pattern of your choice.  I will announce the winner of the contest on Tuesday, 2/18/20.  Good luck and get those creative juices flowing.  My creative juices have all but dried up!

Soon,
Lynn

  1. those feathers will take a lot of time but are so pretty in the end. I will see if I can come up with a name for the quilt - I hope others can help - I'm not too good with coming up with names for my quilts at times

    1. I know it is hard to come up with a name. Sometimes I know if right away.....most of the time I don't! --Lynn

  4. Fireside Sky or Fireside Skies. My first thought was Fireside Stars but it too is taken.

    1. This is going to be much harder than I thought to pick a name. Good ones!

  5. 'Wandering Through the Stars'?

  6. It's very pretty - how does "Twinkle, Twinkle" sound?

    1. Well Candy...I don't want to be mad. But there is a ton of red fabric in this quilt.

  8. Maybe Red Dawn. I don't see why it matters that more than one quilt has the same name. I've seen it done many times. Especially when the other quilt is called Red Stars instead of Red Sky. You should name it whatever your want.

  9. "Red, Red, Gold"

    Poem by Wilfrid Scawen Blunt:

    Red, red gold, a kingdom's ransom, child,
    To weave thy yellow hair she bade them spin.
    At early dawn the gossamer spiders toiled,
    And wove the sunrise in.

    She took the treasures of the deep blue noon,
    She took the clear eyes of the morning star,
    The pale-faced lilies of a seven-days moon,
    The dust of Phoebus' car.

    She painted thee with dewdrops from the flowers,
    Stained with their petals, hyacinth and rose,
    And violets all wet with April showers
    And snowdrops from the snows.

    (Phoebus is another name for Apollo)

  10. IDK, I thought that your original choice was the Perfect name for this quilt. I like how you linked it to the sky at night. To me, the word ‘country’ is used non verbally with this beautiful quilt. So to me, I like Red Sunset. Good luck with finding a perfect name for your perfect quilt. Which by the way, is my favorite one of yours so far. (and I have_had two favorites one so far). 😆

  11. Like QuiltGram I was thinking of a red sunset. I thought your choice was good as well. So I'm offering up Stars in the Red Sunset. Or Stars in a Fiery Sky. This is such a beautiful quilt!

  13. I like "Woven Sunrise" Lynn. It is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have nothing to offer but GORGEOUS!!! LOL

  15. Red Sky Delight or Night Sky Delight. I really love how it came out!

  16. I suggest Renaissance Stars. It is a very regal and elegant quilt to me. Almost medieval looking. Carol on Texasm

    1. That's interesting. I hadn't thought of that.

  17. Beautiful. Reminds me of “Sunrise Special”

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like Woven Sunrise but are there stars when the sun rises? Also, any reference to red limits another quilt in different colors. How about Stellar Stars? Or Wild Stellar Stars. 😉

  19. I'm SO not good at this game but here I go: Crimson Constellation, Scarlett Constellation (or Claret?), Country Constellation, Constellation in Crimson (etc), Vintage Constellation, Paisley Path/Stars....that's all I got. I think my head hurts now. (Not sure why I got stuck on constellation, other than it's more unique than "stars"?) . Good luck. The right name is out there somewhere. It's a beautiful quilt!

  20. Crimson Dawn? Scarlet Twinkles? Brilliant Dawn? (had to go with something other than night.) :D River of Stars?

    ReplyDelete
  21. How about Starry Path (s) (way) or Starcrossed Path

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am partial to "Starpath". We had a sailboat with that name many year's ago Or I should say, many boats ago!).

    ReplyDelete
  23. There are so many good ones listed. Boy are you going to have a hard time picking one. Go Mazey, you'll pick the winner!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Such a hard thing to do.
    Sunrise at Dawn is my suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  25. How about Twinkle Twinkle Twilight?

    ReplyDelete
  26. It sorta reminds me of a box of cherry chocolates, but I suppose that's already taken as well.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The quilt is absolutely beautiful! Good luck selecting a name.

  28. So beautiful it is regal!

  32. I’ve been thinking about this ever since I read your blog a couple days ago, and I think I’ve finally thought of a great name - Mazey’s Choice. I love it and I hope you like it, too. Margaret mammichatcomcastdotnet
