Quilt with no name yet

With me stuck at home and the sick hubby, I made a few more blocks on the quilt from the cover of the Quilters Newsletter magazine.  I would love a name for this quilt - so any ideas?

I have maded 10 blocks, and think that I will make 20 in total.  The original quilt has 25 blocks I think, and is a square quilt.  I prefer rectangle quilts, so will just make the 20 blocks.  Not sure about the setting yet, or if I will do the 4 patch border.  No doubt I will settle on something by the time I get to that point.

This is a great quilt for using up scraps.  Apart from the green and pinks, which I had to look hard for, I can just about use anything I put my hand on, and it works!

Just in case you have not seen the original quilt, this is it from the Quilters Newsletter Magazine.   Made by Linda Cordell Wilkey and her friends of the 19th Century Patchwork Divas, from Texas in the USA.  You can tell the different personalities of the block makers by looking at the way they arranged the flying geese for example.  Some are really scrappy - lots of different fabrics and others are planned and set 2 at a time.

I love the way the blocks sparkle against the dark blue background.  There is absolutely nothing (except the size) that I would change about this quilt.  I love it ti bits!


  1. Very pretty. I do not have an idea for a name. It does look like a nice quilt to use up scraps.

  2. I'm terrible at naming quilts so I'm no help on that point.
    Your quilt is looking really fantastic!!!

  3. The very first thing that popped into my head on seeing your quilt was "A Walk Around the Parks".
    The way you are allowing your beautiful green patches to flow into one another just reminded me of wonderful resting places [parks] the flying geese made me think of walks... and the nine patches [to me] are the quilts spread out to enjoy an afternoon in the park... oh wait, how about "An Afternoon in the Park"???
