Nameless Finish and a Giveaway!

I have another finish to show!  For more information on the quilt design and the reason why I made it, you can read all about it here.


I quilted straight lines echoing the colourful zig-zags about 1/4" apart, using my walking foot.  I then used my Hera marker to trace lines radiating from the "valleys".  I love the look it gives the quilt.


For the binding, I decided to use the same white as the background.  I really wanted the focus to remain on those zig-zags and on the quilting.

I haven't yet prepared the label for this quilt because I am completely and totally unable to come up with a name for it.  

Can you help me?  If you have an idea, please leave it in the comments.  If I choose your suggestion for the quilt, I will send you a charm pack of the fabric I used for the quilt:


To be fair, I will show the suggestions to members of a jury composed of my family, and they will choose.  :-). This giveaway is open to everyone and I will announce the winner on Wednesday, February 4.

Thank you for your help!

Will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF hosted by The Devoted Quilter.

And this is the 2nd finish on my 2015 Q1 FAL list!

  1. I love the quilting you have done on this quilt it really makes the quilt pop and the quilting at the top looks like diamonds to me so I would call it white diamonds

  2. Très beau Izzy! I love your straight quilting. For me it looks like your zig-zags have chills in the snow. So I would call it "Chilling".

  3. Really like your quilting - the radiating lines seem art deco to me and remind me of new york so I would call it sky high!

  4. Reminds me of a prism. I'd call it Prism Glow. Lovely.

  5. You used the word "Valleys" in your post, and I think it's a perfect name for this quilt. The quilting is what makes this quilt. Very nice!

  6. It looks so good, Izzy! Since it's for a guild thing, I'm going to suggest "chromaticity." That has to so with the wavelength of color and certainly has a modern edge. Good luck getting the perfect name!!!

  7. I'm terrible at naming quilts! This one is gorgeous, though. I really love how the quilting dominates the top while the bright colours are the focus in the bottom. Such a great design. Good luck with finding a name for it, and thanks for linking to TGIFF!

  8. Very pretty...I would call it aurora borealis... that is what it reminds me of, the night sky in Alaska. Good luck with your name search!

  12. I'm not so good on names, but since you had to choose a style and you chose negative...maybe include that style in the name to help display that style....Negative Color, or Color the Negative. I love the pattern tho...simple but bright! That's a name...Simple and bright!

  13. The quilting makes me think of looking over the mountains into the sky, so I say "Horizon."

  14. I agree with Samantha - the first thing I thought of was movie spotlights. So maybe Hollywood?

  15. Iceberg or Winter wave...the points and lines remind me of the shards and shapes of frost, icicles and icebergs...the colours have wintry tones too...and it'll be a friendly wave for someone too.
    Best wishes on choosing a name. It does look beautiful.

  16. HI, LOVE YOUR QUILT!
    I'D CHOOSE ONE OF THE CORNER TRIANGLES AND THEN IN BLACK WRITING (OR STITCHING) CONTINUE WRITING IN A TRIANGLE SHAPE.
    THANKS FOR YOUR BLOG!

  17. Heartbeat is what I would call it.

  18. So many good suggestions already. It reminds me of gemstone facets as well as peaks and valleys. The quilting is so sharp! I'm no good with names, but 'glitterati' springs to mind.

  19. Lovely quilt. I thought of the northern lights as soon as I saw it. So I'd probably go with "Northern Lights" or "Polar Silhouette".

  20. Summer Chevron to combine the fabric collection and pattern.

  21. Love the straight line quilting. Your quilt reminds me of Snow Capped Mountains.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'd call it "Ups and Downs", or because the quilting reminds me of spotlights pointed into the sky, "Spotlight On The Quilting". No matter what you decide to name it, it's great!!!

  23. Great finish - love the quilting on this one!
