Name Our Project Contest


Back in June, we launched our philanthropic project by handing out kits to be made into quilt blocks. Thanks to the quick sewing of our members, the blocks were assembled in no time at all! The blocks are well on their way to becoming a beautiful quilt.

Ultimately, this quilt (and hopefully a few more) will be donated to an organization that assists young people who are aging out of the foster care system.

Along with help making the quilts, we need some additional help.....naming our project!

Any member can submit a name for our project by commenting on this post or by sending an email to bakersfieldmodernquiltguild (at) gmail (dot) com.

We will accept suggestions until Friday, August 16th. All members who are present at the guild meeting on Saturday, August 17th will be able to vote for their favorite project name and the one receiving the most votes will be the winner.

And yes, the member who submits the winning name will receive a fabulous prize!

So, put on your most creative thinking cap and come up with a warm, wonderful and whimsical name for our philanthropic project.


  1. Okay, I'll go first! My idea is something like "New Start Quilt Project" or "Jump Start Quilt Project".

  2. Here are a couple of ideas:

    "Independence Quilts"

    "Caring Stitches Quilt Project"

    "Threads of Love Quilt Project"
