It's my mood, and I'll quilt it if I want too!

There were some really good ones in here. I was very tempted to go with Earl, as in Earl Grey, and start a tradition of giving my quilts men's names (for newbies, my last major quilt was named George, Jr.). "Grey-Stoked Square Balls" gets mad points for creativity and for ensuring that I will now sing those words every time Spongebob comes on TV. There were a couple Grey's Anatomy entries and a few references to bats and guano. I thought "Lord Thorneycroft" was awesome and it tuns out he's a real dude who said something marginally famous about politics and shades of grey. "Ag e Moon" gets style points for knowing the atomic symbol for silver.

But the winner I have chosen is: Hoar Frost. For one thing, I think it describes the quilt nicely. Here's hoar frost on a fence:

And for another, it sounds like "Whore Frost." Can't beat that.

Now I miscounted my quarter yards and it turns out I only have seven, but there will be a few other things in the box as well to make up for it. So, congratulations, Lisa! An email is incoming.

Have to totally agree. When I saw that one it just seemed right. Congrats to Lisa!
