Can you help me name my quilt? I'm using the Farmer's Delight pattern in memory of my Grandmother Vera Heatwole. She made at least 15 bed size quilts with 20 blocks in each quilt in her life time. Grandmother used scraps to create her quilts and they turned out beautiful. Sometimes you see the pattern with only 1 ring of triangles around the center. My sister, Polly, drafted this pattern for paper piecing and she and Barbara made their own versions.
I decided to continue the design out into the border by quilting with dark plum thread.
And now, what name would you suggest for this small quilt?
