Wow [And HELP!]

What a great response to The Road Home Row-Along - I wish you all luck in the give-aways!!  I've done my best to reply to all comments, if you haven't heard from me, you've come up as a no-reply blogger.  There are ways to fix that, just google!

Foggy morning

Isn't that a pretty picture?  I never get tired of looking out the windows here.  That may change come winter, though.  I can almost guarantee it.  

I've been keeping busy with my latest applique pattern, I'm stitching down binding now and it's making me SO cheerful - I just love red!!


Although it looks a bit more orange in that pic, doesn't it?  Still, it's a cheerful project, and keeping me happy.  But you know what?  I don't have a name for it!

***give-away alert***

So - if you have a suggestion for a name, leave me a comment, and if I pick your suggestion, you'll get the pattern free!   There's a table runner, a snack mat [because sometimes a mug mat isn't big enough, right?] and a wall-hanging or table mat.  I really need your help with this one!


As soon as the binding is down, I'll write up the patterns - you'll get three for the price of one!  Gotta love a bargain.

And speaking of bargains, do you know I haven't made it to ONE garage sale this year?  Not that I need anything, I'm realizing with this move that we already have everything.  I broke my stick vacuum shortly after we moved in, and just the other day hubby found another one in our old basement.  That's right, the old house is still not empty.  Somebody needs a deadline.  And it's not me.  Just sayin'.

I'll be back in a couple of days with more blogs for you to visit, more rows and more give-aways - and don't forget to comment with a name for me!!

Love,
Allie

Names are so personal but maybe Bloomin Pots. They are very cute.

Yvonne said...

Being Dutch, I love tulips and your flower looks like a tulip. So my suggestion is ' Tulipmania'

Águeda said...

For me, names are a little history of its making. So, " Follow your flowers" is a good name for it. :)

What sweet flowers! How about Pretty Posy in a Pot!

Gloria said...

"Pots aux Fleurs" is my suggestion...


inspired by the pot-au-feu I am planning for a dinner party!

O'faigh said...

Hi Allie, I love the coloured.My thought for the name would be summer flowers

Beth said...

"Blooming Love" is my suggestion. You've got another cutie on your hands, Allie!

KaHolly said...

Pretty set you are working up! You always have such good ideas. It's pretty early in the morning and my brain hasn't kicked in yet, so no ideas for a name for your new pattern. XO

Little Quiltsong said...

Beautiful little 'Flower Pot' blocks. Love the little borders around them with the red binding.

West Michigan Quilter said...

Your flowers are so darn cute. How about "Hello Sun".

Kath said...

Too cute! So for a name: 'spots (pots) of sunshine'.

Barb said...

Love Blooming is the name I would give to the pattern! I just LOVE it!

Kathy said...

The first thing that came to my mind seeing this project is "Pots of Love".

Tammy said...

Enjoy your blog---how about ScrapHappy Flower Quilt. ----Tammy

Sylvia Anderson said...

Good morning Allie. The first thing that crossed my mind when seeing your website was, how welcoming it seemed to me, so my name suggestion is, 'Welcome Home'.

Miss Nancy said...

My suggestion is "Happy Day Flowers" because these quilty items are telling you and others to have a Happy Day. I love the design.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

maryf said...

what a cute idea, in fact colorful and cute table mats can give an exciting look to old table. can you suggest some ideas for slate table mats as well.

sherry said...

How about Tulip Hearts?

Ladybug Dreams said...

Well Allie I saw a lot of what I was thinking would be a good name for your pattern in the comments and can only come up with "Patchwork Blooms" Thought about putting Summery in front of that but I think you could change the fabric choice easy enough for any season. Love it!

Rosemary said...

I love these and can hardly wait for the patterns! Summer Love popped into my head just now. Not sure why but there it is. Regardless of what you choose, I love these patterns!

WoolenSails said...

Beautiful new pieces and nice to have a natural view while you sew.
I can imagine what I will find when I get into my basement, it is time and the must is getting worse with the rain, so I know a lot needs to be trashed, then I can clean the floors and walls.

Verna G said...

My suggestion is "Happy Days". It was what came into my mind when I looked at it.

RosieGma said...

Love the Flower Pots...Posy Pots sounds kind of cute..and you can change up the fabric prints by color value, season and even make them match your decor in your kitchen....Thank you for a potsivley,,he,he...giveaway...Love the red binding....

Susan said...

The names I though of are, "A Pocket Full of Posies" and "Bloom Where You are Planted."

Jocelyn said...

Oh Allie, these are so cute. My thought is Love Blooms. Or Love in Bloom. Great pattern!

Joyce Carter said...

Hi Allie. These are so adorable. How about "Potted Blooms in Patchwork"

desertskyquilts said...

Well, THAT upped the number of comments, didn't it! LOL Because of the shape of the flowers, I thought of Gardens of the Heart. I love the design and its okay if I don't win, 'cause I'll wind up buying it anyway. 3 for 1 IS a bargain! If that fella doesn't hurry and get the basement empty, then it will be going on the market in winter, and that's not the best idea! Hope your mom is doing well. I saw an article about Detroit, with pictures, the other day, and that doesn't look like a great city these days.

Fiona said...

so pretty.... I'm useless at names...... and I love the ones already thought of...

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Hmmmmmm....Buds in a cup! (giggle)

Nancy J said...

They are gorgeous, how about "Pots of Colour". You have been even more busy, and another super pattern for us.

Angie said...

This is pots of love. The hearts and it made with your loving hands. Truly presents of God is in this space.

dbuggy1 said...

My suggestion for naming you lovely work is "Calico Garden". It is a very cheerful design!

Patty said...

Love the block, simple and pretty. A good name might be " Heart Blossom". The looks like a heart and yet it is a flower. This hop should be fun.

TrulyBlessed said...

As Audrey would say "Feed Me".

Jenny of Elefantz said...

Love your new design!!

Lin said...

Florabundance? Great design Allie and good luck with getting the rest of of those things moved. xx

rosemaryschild said...

How about "Every Heart Needs Love"-very pretty! spoierssusan52@gmail.com

Terri - Palm Bay, FL said...

Love your pattern, so warm and inviting. Flowers remind me a lot about the way friendships start. Like the flower they start off as a small bloom, but with a little nurturing, they develop into full blooms that keep on giving. I think that "Friendship Blooms" would be a nice name. Whatever you decide to call it, I'm sure it will fit.

Thanks for sharing so many of your creations. Take care and God Bless.
