Naming the Green Donation Quilt - Please Vote and a Giveaway!

WOW ! Thanks for all the name suggestions for the Green Donation Quilt.  
I typed them in as I replied to all the comments today.  I added the ones from facebook and the ones my Mom emailed me from some of her friends.  If you ever need to name a green quilt -- here is a listing!

Spring Greens 

The Greens of Spring

Evergreen Swirls 

Spring Swirls

Whispering Pines

Moss on Cobblestones

The Green Goddess

Evergreen Quilt

Green with Envy


Green Olives

Salad Greens

Green Beans

Forever Green

Garden Greens

I looked up the definition of Green in Wikipedia to see what they say - click here.  One of the things that I noted was that the color green is restful to the eye and they said studies show that a green environment can reduce fatigue.  As a quilter, surrounded by colors all day long, I am always interested in reading about colors.

Thanks for helping me compile a list of green names.

Ok... so what should I name the Green Donation Quilt?  
Please take a moment to vote! 
You could win 1 yard of 108" wide quilter's blenders green fabric.  That is 36" by 108" wide. It would make a great outside border and is perfect for a binding for any quilt! It's the green fabric I used for the backing, last border, and the binding. I carry this green on my website at Fabrics - 30 Extra Wide Fabrics.
I will be doing a random drawing from those who leave a vote... 
Here as a comment 
Or on my facebook page (see link in sidebar)
Or in a direct email to me - Marcia@craftysewing.com

Giveaway ends May 4th at Midnight and will be announced on the weekend. Yes - I will mail Internationally for the Giveaway!
Thanks for voting!
Enjoy all the greens around you...
Marcia

Voting Question: Do you have to vote on the ones I listed? If you have a new one, can you comment and add it?  YES  --- please add to the list!

My vote is for Green Beans - I like the whimsy of it. Beautiful quilt.

Debbie said...

Irish Countryside...exactly what it looks like. Absolutely beautiful quilt.

Melissa said...

Starting with the definition you found, I looked up antonyms of 'fatigue' and one of them was 'spirit'. Putting that together with my favorite from your list, I come up with 'Spirit of the Emerald City'.

Good luck choosing! It is beautiful! Someone is going to be so happy to receive it :)

Misty Smith said...

I like the name Emerald City. It's a very beautiful quilt.

VickiT said...

First Marcia ~ I wanted to say I'm sorry for not being around lately. Family things pulled me in all directions with one being a scary thing which meant a trip to MI.

Anyway, I think the names given are all good but, I'm going to add another because of where it's going. Those receiving help from that organization and their families will always remember the caring staff and the name of their organization. And because it serves all medical conditions from what I could tell on their website, which I assume could be part of their reason in giving the name to their organization although I could be wrong.

Anyway, I like the name "Rainbows of Green".

And how awesome your quilt will be hanging in the theatre. How long will it be there before the auction? I am not positive but, I am thinking we may go there for our wedding anniversary in a few months and it would be awesome to see your quilt in person. Of course, it's only about a 45 minute drive so I could talk hubby into a quick little road trip to go see it once I know it's over there too. :)
