Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday

Today's post is about:
Needing help with a name for my quilt by Saturday,
and a Giveaway for you, today, 
and about another Blog Hop Giveaway on Friday.

I need your help with a name for my Print Publication Quilt Project for the Project Quilting Challenge.  I can't show the finished quilt, because it is not done yet. 

I want to name it something that has to do with reading.

Some Ideas:

Reading Between the Lines

Black and White and Blue all Over.

Quilted Words

Here is my progress on my project.



I cut the strips --- 1 inch, 1 1/4 inch and 1 1/2 inch.



Randomly stitched the strips together.


 Pressed/ironed and starched.



Ready to cut.



Remember my inspiration for this quilt is based on page 28 from a magazine.



Please leave a comment and help me name my quilt.

Leaving a comment will also enter you in a Giveaway for you, my readers.

The prize today is a set of 6 Quilter's Blenders Fat Quarters --- Primary and Secondary Colors. Open to everyone.



Giveaway ends Saturday, March 9th at Midnight.  Winner will be announced on Monday, March 11th.

Update:  Winner Announced -- click here!

Thanks for helping me name my quilt!


-----------------------------

There will be another Giveaway that starts on Friday, March 8th.  It is hosted by the Quilting Gallery.  I am giving away more prizes!

Beautiful blue and the other fabrics.

I think you should name it Quilted Medicine because of that page being some type of prescription.
Plus the fact that quilting is sometimes our medicine when we just need to relax and play with our fabrics.

Kim Wells said...

Hmmmm - Back to black
or
between the lines

I dunno.... but I'm loving those fabrics together and can't wait to see the finished product!

jan said...

The name that comes to me is "Lines on a page"

Can't wait to see more!

Debbie said...

How about Comic Strip? Or Stripped Threads. These days the word thread is often used to reference a written conversation. Wish I could see your Page 28 better, LOL!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Well, I am seeing the charts - love the blue - blue charts - but thinking French blue with your colors - bleu' charet

Janet said...

Lines from my favourite story.

hueisei said...

Hmm... love the colors. Maybe I will named it "Strippy Bluey"

Janarama said...

Because of the story behind the quilt, I would call it Page Twenty-Eight.

That would be a great conversation starter. You'd be asked why you named it Page Twenty-Eight.

Gill said...

I actually prefer 'Page Twenty Eight' Janarama's suggestion!! or what about guidelines?

Sarah_L_N said...

First thing that came to mind for me was 'Reading between the lines', as you had to be creative to base a quilt on a page of text! :)

sewyouquilt2 said...

how about Turn to page 28- when I read the challenge that is what came to my mind immediately.
what a fun challenge!

"Black and white and blue all over"

Reminds me of the old newspaper joke...

Lia*s Handmades said...

I like 'Black and White and Blue all over' ;)
Still haven't started on mine, I have a page, but am clueless as to what to do with it yet LOL

Mhairi said...

Why not call it after your favourite book quote, or just one that most people will recognise.
IE - "best of times", once upon a blue
Although having read everyone else's comments I really like Page 28.
Love the quilt too, looking forward to seeing it all finished.

Lisa Marie said...

How about "Making Something Out of Nothing" because your inspiration page didn't have much in the way of inspiration!

Fiesta said...

I'm not blue.
Thanks for the chance

JoyceLM said...

How about "Literary Lights".

gpc said...

I do like the "Page 28" suggestion! My first thoughts were Secret Message and The Continuing Saga.

Sewing Mom said...

I really love the way that came together. I'm not great with naming things...isn't that pathetic...but I don't normally name my quilts, or sewing machines, or cars. =) Maybe 'Blue Bar'.

Thanks for a chance to win your giveaway. =)

Lori said...

"Line Graph"

Linda said...

My first thought was "Page 28" or "Turn to Page 28". As one commenter said, it is a great conversation piece with that name :) Btw, I love, love the color choices!!

Kris said...

I love the colors. How about "Fine Print" that give the viewer a chance to look closer and see what they dream is in the quilt.

Elisabetta said...

by seeing your work I imagined:

Lined Blue Words and Black Swirls

I can't wait to see the finished quilt ^_^

thank you so much for the giveaway too

Donana said...

I always love your color choices!

How about "Bruised Correspondence"?

Judy B said...

How about News in Blue. Some other great names have been suggested.

Linda said...

HI! I'D CHOOSE 'COBALT LINES'!
THANKS FOR SHARING!

Quiltsmiles said...

"Fiber therapy" since it's inspiration was from a page with medication specifications and your "drug of choice" is Fiber. lol Jane

barb said...

How about "never too blue to read babscorbitt@gmail.com

Sandy said...

"Take Away The Blues & Read Through The Lines"....

Unknown said...

I am not very original, but I do like Black and White and Blue All Over. Nancy: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

Rosa said...

I love Reading Between the Lines, because your idea comes when you are reading.

Belinda said...

I like Reading Between the Lines too.
I can't come up with anything better. :)

jmniffer said...

How about, The Best of Lines (a bit of word play from the opening line in A Tale of Two Cities...It was the best of times, it was the worst of times). Silly, but that's what came to mind.

Amy Hill said...

I had some thoughts, but I love "Page 28" Great suggestion :) and gorgeous colour combo!

Kristy fordhook1 said...

I can't think of anything clever, but I thought of "follow instructions".

Diann said...

How about "Curled Up in a Corner?" I love to curl up and read.

Jan Baker said...

I was going to go with Quilted Words but really like Page 28 better. Thanks for the giveaway. 3bakergirlsgo@gmail.com

Sallie said...

"Modern Scrolls" - thanks for the giveaway!

Rita E in AZ said...

"The rest of the story". Your fabrics look great.

Laura said...

I would name it "Read the Directions."
