What's in a name?

Tonight, Cori is away from her computer, so what do I do when I need her to answer a question for me? I have decided to take my plight public.
This is the computer generated copy of our latest quilt design. From the day it was on the drawing board, I called it "hugs & a smooch". Then, our insightful friend Judy pointed out that the X is a kiss, and not a hug. Thanks Judy - so we changed the name to 37 kisses.
I have spent the last few weeks, piecing this quilt together for my daughter. Well, while piecing 37 kisses, I made at least 37 piecing errors! I told Cori that I was happy when it was done! Today I finished it, layed it out for the last final look, and realized that one section of blocks was pieced wrong. Grrrrr. Well, I fixed it, and tonight I sat down to finish the project, and write the instructions. Grrrr, I found another error! Did you find it? There are only 36 kisses on the quilt!
So, tonight I threw out the name, and asked my daughter, what should I name it? Her suggestion - 'the kisses quilt'.
And now I am asking all of you. What would you name this quilt? Once it has a name, this project can finally be edited, photographed, and set to print. So for the next week, (until next Sunday night) leave your favorite name for this project.
see you again soon.

But. . . there ARE 37 kisses on the quilt! 36 pieced "X" blocks and a kiss from the lips! I love the name 37 kisses! (Prime number you know).

On a serious note, I came up with "A Whole Lot Of Kissing Going On"

Well, I guess if you don't count the lips, there are only 36 - I like the name '37 Kisses', seems so appropriate.

Kathy said...

37 Kisses work as the lips do make that extra kiss. The lips are the focus of the quilt and I love words like Smooch or Smacker to describe the lips. So those words in the title could be fun too.

How about Smooch and Kisses?

mrspesti said...

i like the name 'pucker up' or 'all smooched up' the X's remind me of tic-tac-toe so i also thought 'the kissing game' would be cute

Agnes said...

What came to my mind was "How much do I love thee?" Of course the next line is, Let me count the ways.

Gotta call it "Time to Pucker UP" or "Pucker Up"..... I love the Quilt!!!
Oh, just thought of another name..."Lots of Kisses"

sara groves said...

Judy said...

Great quilt and yes it was me that was the cause of the name change. Glad that you have it pieced and you deserve a big HUG!!!!!!

I love the quilt! How about "Just Kisses" or "Kisses Please". The lips remind me of the show MASH and "Hot Lips".

Uschi said...

With this cold weather we are having I keep thinking ,
" Snuggled in Kisses"

Marcy said...

You sure have alot of good suggestions. I think you just made your decision that much harder. Good luck.

Kiss, Kiss, Kiss

Jean said...

How about something like.... "I've saved all my kisses for you!"
It is a cute quilt!

Kerry said...

I was counting the lips as a kiss before you told me not to. I think 37 kisses suits it fine! Love the stories and pictures of the donation quilts. Job well done to all concerned.

Okay, I'm TERRIBLE at naming. So here's my best crack at it...

Keep your name and "hide" another kiss on the back (or would everyone just curse you for piecing a little kiss on the back somewhere??).
