Do Your Quilts Whisper Their Names?

Judy says she was amazed that this quilt turned out to be so serene, since the pinks are really warm.
I think it owes it's serenity to the fact that there are more vanilla blocks than cherry blocks.
I thought this pattern was one of Judy's creations, but she says it's by another designer. I'd love to give the designer credit, if I knew who she was. If you know, please let me know.
Tonight I'll take the quilt to Judy so she can bind it and attach a label from our Victory Quilt Ministry.
When do you know what your quilts will be named? Judy says that, more often than not, she doesn't have a name for hers until they're completed and she's photographing them. I tend to refer to my quilts as something generic, such "the blue and yellow rose quilt", until I'm quilting them. That's when I hear their real name! Therefore, I've been listening for the names of Judy's quilts while I've been quilting them too; I can't bear for her beautiful quilts to have generic names; besides, when they are completed, I list them on my blog.
I now have at least a temporary/transient place to photograph my quilts.
