  1. Beautiful Quilt!  Farmer's wife  quilt is also on my bucket list :). Marti Mitchell has free instructions that use her templates for many of the blocks.  I think she has another session this summer of  free instructions, you just have to be on the mailing list.  I have been receiving them and they look very well written.  That being said, I haven't started yet so I don't know how beginner friendly they are.   I do have the templates already, but I would have bought them anyway, as I'd rather use those instead.     

  2. My daughter really enjoyed reading this post too. She reminded me of some other things we've had names for, the most memorable being when I was a kid, our family named our cars. We had a red volkwagon van with black interior called Ladybug, a green VW van called jolly Green Giant, and a brown VW van we named Hershey Bar. My sister drove a bubble car "Silver Bullet", and currently we drive Dragonfly, our surburban. :)

  3. Mine are usually named after who I am giving the quilt to, how I was feeling, or where I was when I was piecing/quilting it....

    "The warm quilt'', "the quilt i pieced in the rental house", "Wayne's special blankie" "the fast quilt" "the cool technique I just learned" "the sampler I started 5 years ago".

    A future quilt: "the Christmas applique my sister & I are going to make together...the one with lots of detail."
