Quilting, Binding, and I Need a Name for My Star Quilt - Help!


I combine the Friendship Star Block and the Warm Wishes Pattern to create my Baby Star Quilt.  My Mom picked out the colors, as this will be the baby quilt from my Mom for the new baby to be.  As you know, I am going to be a Grandma and my Mom is going to be a Great Grandma!  We are so happy!



I quilted (stitched) our names in the border.

It says:  Made with Love by...


Great Grandma Joanne...



and Grandma Marcia


I stitched a wiggle line with stars in the border.



I chose the blue checked fabric for the binding and stitched on the binding with an all machine embroidery stitching binding.



I quilted a wiggle line X in the center of the star with a swirl in the points of the star.



Around the stars, I quilted with a small meandering and stars.






I quilted in a couple hearts in the corner.



I need help with a name.
  
For Project Quilting  your quilt needs to have a name.  I need the name by NOON CST on Sunday --- So if you read this before then, please help me.  I am going to post my photos on the flicker site with a temp name of "Baby Stars".

Any ideas for names?



I first thought about "A Star is Born".



Next, I thought maybe "Warm Stars" was a good name?



I really liked "Baby Stars"?  


Any ideas?





Thanks in advance for your help with a name.  

Sometimes, I think naming the quilt is the hardest part for me!

"A Star is Born" or "Warm Stars" or "Baby Stars" or do you have an idea for a name... leave a comment if you do!

Thanks!
Marcia

Beautiful quilt, lovely fabric and amazing quilting. As I was reading your post a couple of names sprung to mind, only to see them at the end of your post! How about 'A Star Is Born'

I think it looks like A Diamond in the Sky (Like from the rhyme Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

Janarama said...

Playing off the name Sharon suggested ... Grandma's Golden Star.

Well being a nana... I would have to switch it up to "Nana's Nightsky"
Good luck choosing one you have some good help here :)

Hi Marcia! That's so beautiful quilt and your quilting is fantastic! That warm yellow colour is so lovely that I tried to find a name with it, how about 'Golden Stars'. Sunny wishes! x Teje

I think Baby Stars is perfect because it also was your first pick and you immediately liked it :)

This baby quilt is absolutely beautiful! You're a true artist in FMQ!!

Chiska said...

My first thought when I saw your quilt was "it looks like stars in the clouds." So how about Stars in the clouds.

Diann said...

How about "Wish on a Star"? I also like "A Star is Born."

Jan Barnett said...

My first thought was Sun-Kissed Stars!

VickiT said...

My first thought was also "A Star is Born" BUT, then I thought "Star in our Eyes" or "Heart Stars" since this one is definitely a baby within your hearts and a star within each of your eyes.

So lovely! I think "A Star is Born" is perfect.
