The Quilt House needs a name...

So we moved to Florida but my quilting "stuff" didn't fit in the house my husband picked.  His solution?  A small quilt house for me to sew in...only the little house needs a name.

Well, first it needed some work...but after some cleaning, painting, tree removal...well, you got the picture.  It is now a fully operational quilt studio (and yes, I am channeling Star Wars when I type this....)

It isn't fancy but I have great light and lots of space.  I'll have indoor photos soon.  Best of all the Kola table fits, a huge work table is against one window, and I have not one but TWO design walls!  I also have one room to store quilts on large racks.  I kept the back bedroom as a bedroom so if/when quilt friends visit we have a "clubhouse" and can do sleep-overs!

It needs a name...quilt house just doesn't seem fun enough!  I want to paint a "barn block" and hang it right between the front two windows but think I should know what to call the house first?  Any ideas?

Oh, wow, how cool is this? Your own quilt retreat!!
Quilt Cottage works for me, but I am sure others will come up with something much more clever!

Perhaps you could use the name of a favorite quilt block for your studio and then do the barn block using that block for the front of your studio.

How about Goldie's Studio? She seems to have full ownership of your houses :)

So glad I found you alive and well in Florida. I knew that you had moved but when I would check your blog, it was always the same post (2017? 2016?) I assumed you gave up blogging like so many have done.

Hello again!! I shall be watching you!!! LOL and many hugs
