the name... FINALLY!

Quilt with no name has been quilted and finally has a name! Yes, those that follow on facebook already know all about it, but for all my wonderful blogger fans -- quilt with no name is now "Clouds in My Latte".

It was sort of an aha moment. I had been going back and forth with all the suggestions you guys came up with. I had it narrowed down to a strange combination of a few of them, but it was working for me (in case you don't know, I'm sort of strange too). Well, I was standing there cutting my binding, ipod playing in my ears, when Carly Simon's "You're so Vain" came on. I'm cutting away, singing along and BAM... it hit me. Yep, just like that! The fabrics were called Vanilla Latte and as I was singing "...clouds in my coffee" it just seemed to fit; and no, I do not sing nearly as well as I quilt so don't ever ask me to reenact the moment!

Here she is, in all her beauty:

I would once again like to thank everyone for all the name suggestions -- you are some really good namers! I am sure I'll be tapping into those naming abilities again one day - THANKS!


  1. Wonderful quilting! [as usual] These are such happy feathers!

  2. I love, love, love this quilt....give yaself a pat on the back for creating such a masterpiece....

  3. You did an AWESOME job on this quilt!! Can you give any pointers to, someone just starting to learn about quilting, that is wanting to attempt at least a square with the puffy clouds and feathers?

    These feathers were stitched using a single layer of Quilters Dream wool batting and "puff" because of the dense background stitching around them. You could also do the feathers trapunto style. Hope this helps.
