Quilt finish!

I finally got the binding on my second quilt. I think it turned out nice and I cannot wait to send it to the recipient. This is a question for you quilters. Do you name your quilts? I have noticed several people seem to name them by pattern or content. Because this one has the Beatitudes incorporated into the blocks I am going to call it the Beatitudes quilt. I guess you could also name them for the recipient if it is a gift. I have a batik square dance pattern waiting in the wings. Teresa and I shopped for the fabric when we went to Tulsa for the SN camp. They have so many quilt stores for the size of town. I was amazed at how many options people have there. 

We can post the pictures of the Spring/Easter exchange I participated in  from Stitched with Love Exchanges There is a new one just posted if any of you are interested and join in the fun.
 This is the fun spring stuff from June to me. I had just sent my green poka dot scissors away in a RAK a month or so ago even though I just loved them. They came back to me! Great buttons, fabrics and ribbons to finish. A lamb for sugar cookies or biscuits and book mark calendar and of course..... Chocolate! Sadly the Cadbury Caramel Egg was eaten by one of my pets.... I was saving it for a special moment or crisis which ever came first. It was on my counter high table in the kitchen and while I was working in the bedroom I believe the larger animal leaned into the table to abduct it. :(
This is all that remained... a cyclops egg cover with frayed ends. It was so cute when it arrived I had been protecting it I thought from all the varmints in my house (DH, DS and 4 dogs) I failed but was spared 190 calories. 
I stitched a design called April showers for Janet and sent some  stitching goodies.
Thanks for stopping by and spending a few minutes of your day.
Happy stitching,


  1. Congratulations on a gorgeous quilt finish, Pam--the colors are wonderful... I just love what you received from June and the piece you made for Janet is adorable! Have never seen that one before...

    Enjoy your day :)

  2. Great exchange pieces! Sorry you missed the chocolate. I did name my quilts. Whether for the person, the design, or colors. Some of the names were - I Did Him One Better (a bowtie), Purple Rain (half sq triangle), Red, White & Boom, The Gentle Man's (for DH's grandfather), etc.

  3. Congratulations on your beautiful quilt finish!
    Your exchange pieces are lovely.

  7. Hi Pam, I am a first time visitor from Find A Friend Friday. I am a new quilter and have wondered the same thing. I recently finished my sampler quilt and named it Shalom. It hangs in my entry and is the meaning of peace and wholeness as well as hello and goodbye. I wrote a blog post about it recently in my Sacred Sunday post. I even put the name of it and the date on the quilt on a little tag. Great question!

  8. You quilt is beautiful! Someone is going to be very lucky to receive it. :) What a wonderful exchange you received! Too bad about the chocolate. I'm afraid that animal would have been in the doghouse for awhile. :) Love April Showers, so pretty!

  9. Cyclops egg.....ha, ha, ha!!! =D Gotta love our fur kids.

  10. Congrats on your quilt finish! It's simply stunning. I just discovered your blog through April's blog. Enjoy your exchange goodies! Sorry to hear about the chocolate "abduction". I think you should go out and buy a replacement for the Cadbury egg immediately :)

  11. Love, love, love your quilt! Great colors and I'm sure the recipient will love it!
    Great exchange goodies, but what a sad ending to your chocolate tale!
