Quilt Naming Help -- Please!

I finished this new pattern a few weeks ago.  It has been sitting here waiting to be put to good use, but it really needs a name!  I have not come up with anything even close to clever, or even acceptable for that matter.  I would love some help!  Please!

I am donating this quilt pattern to an organization that a friend of mine from Izzy and Ivy started called Create H.O.P.E. Designs.  The patterns on this website are all $5, and all of the money goes straight to an organization that helps orphanges around the world.  There are different organizations, but they all help orphanges.  Here's the website:


And here's my quilt that needs a name before it can go to the website.




The fabric is Taali, a fun new organic line from Monaluna:

I thought it was perfect for this pattern!  My favorite print is a toss up between the sheep and the landscape.  There wasn't a good picture of the landscape, so here's a better one.


The quilting was inspired by the blue and white zig zag stripe fabric.  I wasn't sure what width I wanted between the zig zags, so I tried one inch.  That was too much, so I put one in the middle.  Then I didn't want three zig zags, but I also didn't want to unpick.  What to do?  Alternate!  I put a couple double rows between the triple ones.  I love how it turned out! 

As with all requests for help, I've got some incentive --

Monday I will have a random drawing for those who comment and give me a suggestion on a name. 

What's the random prize?

5 fat quarters!

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am terrible at naming quilts but I kept thinking of water for some reason so all that I thought of was:

I like AlphaZag! :)

Andrea said...

I am really rubbish at naming quilts but the first thing that came to mind was Alpha-doodle. I haven't read the previous comments yet but will do so now and just bet you have some great suggestions xx

Mommy and baby letters

annmarie said...

Cute cute quilt - you are a very nice person. And thanks for the link. How about "Alphabet Dreams"

LM said...

it makes me happy so,
Always Be Cheerful
or just
Cheerful

Izzy said...

Lovely quilt. For a name, I could only come up with A to Zzzzzz (as in counting sheep to fall asleep). I know... It's a stretch isn't it? :-)

danette said...

Always Believe in Create.

Sallie said...

My first thought was Alphababy.

piecemealquilts said...

I like the orderliness of the pieced sections, and that combined with the letters made me think "Alphabetical Order."

Whatever name you choose, it's an adorable quilt and a great cause.

Kathy in FL said...

First thought that came to mind was "ABC's for HOPE".

mamabug said...

Better Letters
Love your blog so much!!! Thanks k.bugbee @att dot net

Judie said...

How about "Letters and Dreams"? Cute pattern. Judie

Dawn said...

I'm going to write this without reading any other answers so if there are duplicates it will justbe a coincidence.
My first thought was "School Time". Then I thought "The ABC's" or "Life's ABC's", Alaphabet Soup", "Gray School Days".
Hope someone comes up with a name that blows your socks off.

sweet dream

Dianne M. said...

So many cute names! I don't know how you are going to decide on just one. I'll toss in a few more:

A - Baaaa - C

"As Simple As . . ." (with no finish to the sentence)

I love the zig zag on the quilt so I would name it "Zig Zag through ABC"

Gene Black said...

How about "School Day Nap" ?
