|Shweshwe Quilt Top|
I don't name my quilts, but I think this one will be named. I have no idea whatsoever what that name will be. But I feel that since the fabric came all the way from South Africa (and it took a lot of searching to find the quilt shop) and contains 512 HST's, it deserves a name.
But the most exciting news of the week is that I met Kaffe Fasset and Brandon Mably. My quilt guild, Mariners Quilt Guild (plus Mahone Bay Quilters Guild and Mayflower Quilters Guild), hosted Kaffe Fassett (and Brandon Mably) for "Life in Colour: An Evening with Kaffe Fassett Lecture and Book Signing."
I had the privilege to pick them up at the airport. That was so exciting, and I'm still on a high that I met them and had a conversation. The lecture was informative and engaging. We're hoping to bring them back next year for a workshop.

But even more importantly, Brandon liked my orange quilt!!! That's correct, it doesn't have a name other than orange quilt.
We had quilts displayed around the lecture hall. Brandon said he liked the orange quilt over there, that he hadn't seen one with all orange. After the initial shock, I proudly said, it's mine. And after the lecture, he showed it to Kaffe. I make things that I enjoy and don't care what others think, but it was exciting that someone of that caliber liked one of my quilts. Now I feel this quilt needs a name, but oddly, Orange Quilt, seems to be the only thing that keeps coming to me.
If you have any thoughts on what I should call my quilts, please let me know. I'd love to hear how you go about naming your quilts.
Linking up with Adrienne over at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts for the monthly update to The Library Project.
