Yay!! A Pattern Giveaway!!!! And another WISP off the list!!!

I'm really pleased to tell you that I've finally finished my cot quilt - Yahoo!!!! I designed this quite a while ago and it's been sitting for weeks at a time while I hummed and hahhed over borders/fabrics/blocks etc ..... and now it's finally done, I love it :o). This is the first kids' quilt I've designed and I wanted to make something that would be good for either a boy or a girl and I think this one works. Only one problem ..... I don't have a name for it yet ... lol ..... usually when I'm working on a project I have a 'working' name, I tried "Panda Playtime" and "Night-Night Panda".............. .... but I'm just not sure. Any suggestions??
Of course ...... this just begs for a giveaway LOLOL ...... so I guess that's what will make it fun. Leave a comment with your suggestion for a name for this quilt and you could win the pattern!!! Although the winners will be drawn at random so don't worry if you can't think of anything - you'll still have just as much chance of winning :o)!!! Please be patient with me though, I haven't written up the pattern yet as that part is nowhere near as much fun as creating the quilt itself he he he. But I'm working on it and will try hard to have it done by the time this giveaway ends. So, to be a bit generous (timewise) to me LOL. I'll draw 3 random winners on Valentines Day.
If you'd like an extra chance to win a pattern you could mention this giveaway on your blog, and I'll put another entry in if you post a piccy of my quilt too - that's 3 entries instead of 1!!!
I can't wait to hear your ideas ...... :o)!!!

Love the quilt - and it's definitely perfect for either a boy or girl. How about Playtime Pandas?

Thimbleanna said...

I'm the worst at naming things -- I had to laugh at Carol's suggestion though, cause I was going to suggest Playful Pandas!

Jeanette said...

Hi Joy, name??? How about Playful Panda's in a Twirl? Love the quilt & i definately want a pattern. Off to blog about you. :) Hugs, Jeanette

Yvette said...

I like Playful Panda's too. That is just too cute!!

Deb said...

Joy, what an absolutely beautiful quilt. Boy you should be so proud of it. What about "Panda Love" for a name. It is just so sweet.

Janellybelly said...

Hi Joy
What a gorgeous quilt you've designed & made. I showed it to my DD & she asked what the other blocks were called, so she came up with the name 'Pinwheeling Panda's'.

debbie said...

Hi Joy, I was thinking "Pinwheel Panda's" as well. They are so cute.

Milah said...

You really out-did yourself this time! That is the sweetest baby quilt I've ever seen! If I don't win it, I want to buy it!

"Nite, Nite Panda" "Panda Joy" "Panda Party" "Panda Play" "Snugglebunny Panda" "Panda Boogie" (in the US a boogie is a type of dance...hope it's the same in yours!!), "Sleepy-bye Panda". I can't think of a single word to rhyme with Panda! Gorgeous quilt!

Terry said...

I love this quilt! I think Pandamonium would be a great name for it! Thanks! :0)

Kris Meares - Tag Along Teddies said...

Hey Joy! Awwwwww..... they are just so CUTE!! Of course, I AM a little biased when it comes to bears! Tee! Hee! Hee! You've done a gorgeous job designing this, Joy!! Hmmm ... a name ... how about "Peek-A-Boo Pandas". The little bloke looking back through his legs made me think of that. Mind you I liked the "Panda-monium" suggestion, too! WELL DONE! Bear Hugs!KRIS

Agneta quilts said...

Linda said...

It's adorable, and perfect for either boy or girl. I'm not too good on names, and as I don't have any grand babies in the near future, I'd prefer that my entry went to someone else. Just wanted to say how adorable it is.

Winona said...

Joy, this is such an adorable quilt. I just love it. I am not very good at giving quilts names, but how about 'Joy's Panda Sweeties'? I would love to win this pattern. I will talk about your giveaway on my blog in a bit.

Ruth said...

How about Bear Buddies? That quilt is adorable and reminds me of the panda bear I made for my son when he was little. The body wore out and had to be replaced but it was a thoroughly loved bear.

Laila said...

Hi. What a great little quilt. I love it. I think Playtime Pandas sounds great.;-)
This quilt has realy been somthing for my first grandchild. Her mother has been in Australia and I know she wish to go back sometimes....

Veri said...

this is so cute :-)

Annette said...

Your quilt is sooo sweet! I love it. One name I thought of was "Panda Playtime" but I see others had the same idea.

Joyce said...

This cute is adorable. I think Panda-Joy would be a good name. I really like Terry's suggestion of Pandamonium!Whatever you come up with I'm sure it will be perfect.
Hey, maybe Perfect Panda Joy!

Sylvia said...

Wendy said...

The quilt is adorable! Your panda sure has lots of personality. I'm not good with naming quilts but reading all the lovely comments I have to say I really like Terry's title of Pandamonium.
Can't wait to see what you call it.

Linda said...

Ever seen the movie "The Pacifier"? Do the Peter Panda Dance! lol That is what your quilt reminds me of! Great job!

Corinna said...

Well I thought I was coming up with an original idea but Terry beat me to it! So I'll give a second vote for "Panda"monium. Playtime Pandas or Panda-Joy are good ones too. :o) Whatever you choose to name the quilt it's a beaut!

Marilyn said...

Your quilt is just too cute .....my suggestion is
Lazy Days.

Kathy said...

What sweet little Panda's they are!
How about "The Panda Patch" or "Pinwheels in the Panda Patch".
