A Berry Good Giveaway

Hello Everyone,

As many of you know I was on a retreat last week.  During that week I finished my Desert Sky Quilt. I am really in love with the way that it turned out too!



But as with all my quilts, I rename them because they don't necessarily look like what the original pattern was named.


I thought I would have a little contest to name this quilt.  What better way than to ask my readers? 


So what do you think I should name this quilt?  

There will be two winners!!


One winner will receive Judy Niemeyer's pattern


One winner will receive 6 batik fat quarters.... 2 blue, 2 hot pink, and 2 green from the fabrics that I used in the quilt.

Here is how to enter:

1.  You MUST leave a comment here on THIS blog post giving me your suggestion for a name for the quilt and you must leave a way for me to get a hold of you (preferably e-mail)

That is it!! 

The winners will be chosen... one will be the person who named my quilt and the other will be randomly chosen.

The giveaway will remain open through June 11.

If you like to purchase either the pattern or batik fabrics they can be found by clicking here and here.

Best of luck to all!

***This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you to all who entered***


Until Next Time...

How about Berry Burst?

Donna said...

Kiwi Tart came to my mind. The colors are fresh like colorful fruit slices and the points generating out from the circle centers remind me of sliced kiwi. Lovely quilt!

Dani said...

'Playground'
Have a nice day...keep on quilting

Elizabeth said...

The starbursts made me think of dandelions so I suggest "Delightful Dandelions". Love it!

My Life In Quilts said...

Lisa Marie said...

Gorgeous quilt! I suggest naming it Glittering Jewels.

Willow said...

It is so pretty. How about Aurora Borealis?

Betweens said...

this reminds me of a pond with its penny sized leaves on the top of the water...I am thinking of Pennywart as the name I love how it turned out!

Lesley said...

Your quilt, which is awesome, reminds me of ferris wheels..so my suggestion is 'summer wheels'.

Kerry said...

What a lovely colour combo for a spectacular pattern.
Makes me think of Spring colours- cool blues, floral pinks, luscious greens.
So how about Spring Morning.

Amys Crafty Shenanigans said...

Lovely - I think I would call it 'Rays of Happiness' or maybe 'Bursts of Sunshiny Happiness'. WOuld lvoe to win these Batiks - I've never used them before but they make such a lovely quilt!

Laura said...

Um, Raspberry Punch?

LizA. said...

Jolly Rancher -- because it reminds me of a bag of Jolly Rancher candies.

~Kelie~ said...

I'm not good with naming things but this reminds me of the sun and the spokes on a bike wheel so I'd say Sun Spokes, yeah told u I'm not good at this!!!!

Sundays Child said...

Fireworks!

Monika said...

Hi Jackie,
for me this wonderful quilt looks like "Splish-Splash". The feeling of summer, water and ice-cream.

marogez said...

How about Burst of Flowers?

Gene Black said...

Hmmm.. My first thought was "Caribbean Stars" The colors remind me of the colors you see when visiting in the Caribbean. Of course it could be "Caribbean Burst" instead of stars. It does look a bit "bright" for a the night sky. But then there is always creative license to consider.

kfr14819 said...

Painted Desert Sky sounds good to me. Beautiful fabrics. Thank you!

Leanne said...

This quilt reminds me of our spiked watermelons.. take one water melon and cut one 2 inch triangle in the flesh take one bottle of vodka and over the next week slowly pour the vodka in the watermelon replugging each day at the end of the week you have one very spiked watermelon and lots of fun eating it on the beach where you can't take alcohol heheh so its Spiked melon for my pick Cheers annuello1@yahoo.com

tpott said...

My first thought when I saw your quilt was, it looks like splashes of sherbet ice cream. So the name should be "Sherbet Splash". You did such a beautiful job, I love the colors you picked. ;-> Toni Anne

Cecilia said...

Beautiful! Those are such vibrant colors and they read tropical to me. So, I would call it Tropical Sky or Tropical Berry Burst.

Rafael's Mum said...

My thought was 'Starry starry sky' even before I had read any of the text. So the 'sky' in the original title was appropriate!! Now I've got that tune in my head that starts with 'starry starry night...' I can hum it but when I get to the chorus I draw a blank... What was it again? ooooh....

Cheryl Gomez said...

How about Summer Starburst!

patricia said...

Sherbert Under the Stars. Sherbert Nightcap. Did I wake up hungry???

Kristi said...

Love this quilt...keep looking at the pattern to buy myself just haven't gotten up the nerve knowing it would be a challenge for me. Yours turned out lovely!!! For a name I asked my 8 year old daughter and she thought peacock circles but we tweeked it a bit and we thought with all those bright colors parading around the quilt PEACOCK PARADE seemed to fit! Good luck.

Vicki W said...

It's so pretty it doesn't matter what you name it but, if it were mine, I'd probably name it Caribbean Sunrise as a hat tip to the original pattern name.

Pat said...

It makes me think of bubbles so 'Bubbles'.

Popsicle Summer! The colors look like all the flavors of popsicles - the most awesome hot-summer-day-treat I can remember as a kid! The spikes are what you get when you can't quite eat it fast enough and one side falls off and "splats" on the sidewalk :*)

It's so beautifull. It amazes me how I love a quilt with colors I would never have the nerve to put together.

I was going to say Aurora Borealis... but I see someone put that. What about "Aurora's Delight" or "Aurora's Northern Lights". I was also thinking about the Mirage that just occurred over lake Michigan. We could see Wisconsin's lights in Grand Haven, MI, 80 miles away. "Mirage Sorbet"

I didn't read all the comments, so I don't know if this has already been suggested, but what about "Starburst?" When I look at the bright green color, it makes me think of Starburst candies. And with the big "suns" or "stars," it seem sot fit. Thanks for the chance to win!
