On naming your work

It’s Friday!   Yeah … quite an interesting week, I might say …

I needed to think of a name for the small yellow quilt below with the crow.  I found a name I liked, but I thoguht it would be more suited to the other piece of work I had finished.  So I came up with a compromise.  As the quilts where not labelled yet, I decided to switch their names.

So now this one above is called “Some day the rains will fall”. See my last post on this piece.   It is a similar smaller version of the quilt below.

This one is now called “Perched, and sat and nothing more” from “Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe.  And a fitting name it is, as the crow was just sitting there when I found him, and seemed to be posing waiting for me to take photos!

This one is 18″ x 24″ if I am not mistaken, and as you can see (I know I’ve shown it before), it is fully finished and mounted with the plexiglass applied with screws.  There is also some gold paint applied between the quilting on the bottom part.  The paper is from an old book and it has been applied with Gel medium with a layer of self-levelling medium on top.

Drop me a note and let me know whether you find it difficult to name your quilt, or if it comes easy to you …

In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying the mild weather here in Calgary – if you live in the area.  I wish you happy quilting in the days ahead!
