PostSubject: Quilt Naming Contest (i.e. I need help)   Sat Dec 01, 2012 2:14 pm

I am making a quilt for one of the offices for my employer. They are moving to new, bigger space. I made one for the location I am at and named it "Pathways to Healing."

I am completely stumped. I love to name my quilts, but can't think of anything.

How to win will be easy:

1. If you think of a name I use, you win.
2. If you think of a name that inspires me to think of another name, you win.

See, I don't even have to use your name and you can win.



Some of the quilting in a column.


Quilting in the squares.


I'm gifting the quilt next Saturday, December 8th.

Could you tell us what type of work is done in this business? Might help in thinking of a name.

Oh, I didn't think of that. This is a psychiatric clinic and adult intensive outpatient or IOP. The Adult IOP program is great. Patients have group therapy and are typically patients who are having serious issues with depression and anxiety. The group therapy helps them learn how to cope with their illness and what to do when they are having anxiety attacks or periods of depression.

Warm mosaic pathway. I love it! Of course, that is one of the patterns named Underground Railroad, so maybe Road to Peace.

I am purposely not going to look at this again until I'm ready to do the label which will be about Monday or Tuesday. That's because I want to see all suggestions at once. I have looked at these and it is helping get my thoughts together.

Thank you, all my friends.

"Diamonds that made it."

Years ago I had really bad anxiety attacks, so bad infact I'd keep my two DD's home from school! Didn't wanta be alone. After 3 times in the hospital in 1.5 yrs. I had one Dr. that slapped me in the face and one who wanted to put me in the Pysc. ward. Found out I had Low Blood Sugar! I wasn't crazy, I just had a chemical inbalance. Now I'm fine.

And they will be too. They just need to know that and be told that over and over. My heart goes out to each and everyone of them. I feel their pain because I've been there and walked in their shoes. It's not fun. It's scary and you think you'll never come out of this depression your in. But you will. I did.

The diamond shapes makes me think of the different sides of a person and the different approaches to a goal. So I am going with "Facets of Healing"

Okay, the quilt is quilted. I was reading someone's blog about wall hangings and they block their quilts that will be wall hangings.

Here's the blog and directions:

http://www.daystyledesigns.com/blocking.htm

My design wall is already 2 inch foam mounted on a wall in a spare bedroom. I put the quilt in the washer on the gentlest cycle. I used blue masking tape to tape out where I wanted the quilt to be stretched to. Then I stretched and pinned.

Oh, No! I forgot to tell you. I gifted the quilt and now can't remember what I decided on. Okay, I'm really having a senior moment.

I am terrible at naming quilts so won't even try, but I pinned the quilting in a column. I have a Roman coins quilt to quilt and I want to try something like that, when I get to it. I really like your work.
