The 3rd Collection

I promise I will stop posting about the fabric collections but I am so happy about the excitement around the collections, especially "Sweet Tooth". Hawthorne Threads wrote a lovely piece about Anthology Fabrics and "Sweet Tooth". Click here to read all about it!

I have a challenge that I could use you help with. I have designed the third collection which will launch in November at the International Quilt Show in Houston. My challenge is naming this new collection. "Sweet Tooth" came so naturally. Everything about the collection is 100% me and if you know me at all you know I always have a serious sweet tooth (inherited from my father:).

So, this third collection was inspired by my recent trip to Beaucaire, France. I can transport myself back to those 10 wonderful days when I think about the following:
  • Lavender fields and songs of the cicadas. Terracotta rooftops and old shutters in shades of blues and greens. Flower pots decorating balconies and door steps. Quiet siestas and afternoon naps. Enjoying a latte while a man with a baguette walks by, tilts his head, and with a smile, says "Bonjour".

So, any ideas?

I found out about you over at True Up- great collections! I have my second fabric collection coming out at Market and my 8 year old daughter named it for me because I drew a blank. I am working on #3 and have no name ideas yet so I am in your boat too! My first thought for you is something like Ooo La La but it doesn't seem to speak of the France you so nicely describe.

I like Ooo La La. That might actually work! I will keep you posted! Good luck on your fabrics and thanks for the suggestions!

How about "Joie"?
