Calling All Sew Inspiring Rooms!

Hello.  How are ya?

Did you notice there is no "Sew Inspiring Rooms" feature today? 

Kinda sad, I know.  I had a guest blogger lined up for today but unfortunately they had to cancel (last minute) and I didn't think I had enough time to find a replacement.  So I apologize.  It's a busy time of life.  I think we're just going to take a break for a week or two but we'll have some fun guests later on this month! 

In the meantime, if you, yourself, would like to share a fabulous photo or two from your Sew Inspiring Room ~ feel free to send me a picture!  I'll post your picture and give a shout out to you/your blog.  Or maybe even have you do your very own post.  Sew Inspiring Rooms can be big or small, fancy or simple.  Please send photos to me at adctd2qultng@gmail.com


As for me and my house ~ 
I finished up this quilt and am almost done with the instructions.  Like I said before, this is just a simple, patchworky, charm - friendly quilt. 
Pattern coming soon. 
Needing a name for it though...any ideas?


There could be a free pattern in it for you if I pick your idea?!?

Bribery :) 
Does it work?

I have a hard time naming my own quilts. I think "Going to Pieces" might be a good name.

Nicky said...

Bribery is always good! How about Four by Four!

PEGGY said...

Sorry I don't have a name for it but I LOVE your fabric choices! Did you work from 1 line or was it just a stash buster? AND....I'd have never thought of using a dotted background but it looks awesome!
I'll have to order the pattern once it's out since i won't win without naming it :)

So... when I first looked at this quilt, I thought of my kids playing 4 Square at school.... and then I thought of Square roots - (looks like the smaller squares are about 1/4 the size of the larger ones.....) Or Square Dance..... The colors make me want to describe them.... like "Tangerines in the Tide".....

Colleen said...

So all kids of thoughts went through my head for this great quilt, Orange You Blue, City Sidewalks City Blocks, Downtown Square but then songs were flitting through my head and '="It's Hip to Be Square" just came out. The cool fabric, the multiple sized squares, I think it fits.

CJ said...

Cute quilt! I love the colors.

How about...Around the Block ?

B Greene said...

How about "Thrice Around the Blocks"??

Richard Healey said...

I like the squares pretty cool.

Kami Gimenez said...

I like Squares of Mischief. No idea why that came to my head.
LOVE your quilt!

Cecilia said...

I love the quilt. The name that comes to my mind is Cobblestones.

Amy said...

This quilt just looks so happy to me, and I love squares -- how about "Happy Squares!" I really want to do an orange and aqua quilt. Such happy colors!

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Darling pattern and fabric choices! Just looks so fresh and airy and delightful! How about Cake Walk?

Cathy said...

How about "Pantone Color" because your quilt is made with the Pantone colors for 2011 (turquoise)and 2012 (tangerine).

Deb said...

Love the quilt..."Once Around the Block" is the name that came to me when I saw it....

Judy said...

This quilt reminds me of a gathering of adults and children. How about Family Band?

ultraorganized said...

When I saw your quilt I thought of "Big and Little" it's adorable - Terry :)

Kadybug said...

Cute! I think I would call it "Square Dance". To me it looks like the little ones are sashaying around the larger ones.

Leanne said...

What about "All Squared up" as a name for your quilt.
It is beautiful, great choice of colours.

Alison said...

The simplier the better. I love quilts like this. I say call it Simply Squared.

Margaret said...

How about All Sqaured Up and Someplace to Go?
Love the colors you chose.

Amber said...

I would call this beauty "Downtown" it looks so much like buildings in the blocks of a downtown city center with sidewalks on every side. Very cute!!

Patchwork and Play said...

You could just call it "Bribery"!!! Or "This Year & Last" as implied by the Pantone names/numbers?

Barbara M. said...

Hi! What do you think about Dots & Boxes? Barbara from Italy

b78ayers said...

What a grand way to use some of these charm packs I'm sprouting??!! How about "Charming", because it is!

Jittina said...

There are already given a lot of fitting names, but here's my 2 cents: Calling all Squares.

A beautiful quilt! Love the colors.

melliebean26 said...

What a beautiful quilt! The first thing that popped into my head when I saw it was: A Walk Around the Block.

Margaret said...

This is such a joyous quilt - how about "Ode to Joy"?

Lori said...

Love the colors too. How about "Charming"?

Janet Fonoimoana said...

Love the quilt! Love the names all the posters have given! How creative! Can't wait to see which name you choose.

TaraB said...

How about "Building Blocks"

Laurence said...

I Like your patch and when I saw it for me its was : PackmanPatch .
Laurence

b davis said...

I love all the names the posters have given too. But I liked the one who said, "Square Dance" the best. How cute is that?

But if I'm trying to be original I'd say, Block Party!

Dara said...

"Boxed In". So cute- love the symmetry.

Martha said...

"Just Dottie"...I love this quilt...the colors are fabulous. Great job!

paige said...

Makes me think of a stone patio so how about "stepping stones" or "patio squares"?

Gemma Day said...

http://everydayimstitchin.blogspot.com/ Lots of my sewing pics on here or via my Flickr account (link on my main blog page

I have added a link to your blog on my page as I find you really inspiring :D

CAS said...

Love the quilt! The color combo is so fun!

Sharmond said...

"Light in the Window"

Di @ Willowbeck Designs said...

Love the colours and simple design. My first thought for a name was 'letters and postage stamps'.

Jean said...

I absolutely love this quilt...the design, the colors...all of it. How about Heavenly Squared

Julie said...

Beautiful quilt - don't normally like orange but it looks great with the turquoise and white. My name suggestion is BOXED IN

The Piece Maker said...

"Stepping Stones" is what comes to mind. Nice pattern!!

Gaye said...

What about 'Sunset Blue'

Pippa said...

Since blue and orange are complementary colors, you can call the quilt "With my complements." I especially like the use of the word complement as it describes "an addition that produces completeness or perfection in something" (from online thesaurus). You have used an untraditional blue for the orange for a perfect result.

I love the use of squares - they produce such a balanced image. You could call your quilt "on Balance" as both your colours and squares are well balanced. Or "Making the Point," kind of proving both the colour theory and the geometry of the the squares. Along this line you can call it "Practiced theory" or "The Proof is in the Pudding."

All in all, I like "With my complements" if it's going to be used by your guests and "The Proof is in the Pudding" because it so clearly shows a contemporary spin on the classic rules.

Cheers!

Brenda said...

Love the division of the squares! They remind me of pieces of land. Names... Hmmm... "Garden Plots" or even better "Garden Paths".

Becky said...

I love the colors in this quilt! My daughter-in-law used these colors to make a quilt a couple of months ago. At first I thought I wouldn't like it, but it turned out so pretty!

Luis and Rachelle Weger said...

I would love to know what pattern this is so I could make it myself... I'm a beginner! It's a perfect design for my sister in law! I think I'd call it "Morning Tangerine"!!!

Amber said...

Rachelle,

I'm glad you like this pattern. It would be great for a beginner. I am working on the pattern right now and it should be ready in the next few weeks. I'll announce it on my blog when it's available.

P.S. I wanted to email you back, but you are a no-reply blogger. Sorry. I hope you get this!!!

Sincerely,
Amber

Ellen said...

The colors make me think of tropical flowers, so I'd call it Tropical Tiles. That might suggest other colorways to potential quilters - blues & greens would make Seaside Tiles etc. Love your color combo!

threadspace said...

I think i might be too late to enter, but i can't resist rowing in anyway. It reminds me everso much of a bright summery sunset on the coast - G&T o'clock. So my suggestion would be "seaside windows".
(I really like "this year and last" though- clever!)

Luis and Rachelle Weger said...

just got the message. can't wait. thanks!

Kim said...

Have you named it yet? The minute I saw it, it reminded me of moons orbiting planets - so 'In orbit' would be my suggestion! Lovely design, by the way.

ultraorganized said...

What a great quilt -- when I saw it I thought of Squared by Design -- great work -- thanks :) Terry
