Playing with colors... a naming game.

Hi Everyone,

When I was little I used to love to take all of my crayons out of the box and put them together in color order. I think I did it different every time. Light to dark or dark to light. Does that blue green go with the blues or the greens. Is magenta red or pink... on and on... so I guess that is why I like to take the fabrics off the shelves and do the same thing. Yesterday, I had a tiny little while when my work was done before I had to make dinner and I came up with these:

I am calling this one Crashing Waves (inspired by some pictures I took in Monterey on Erin's b-day):


This one is Tangerine Tango Too (more tangerine because I can't get enough of it):


This one is Fade To Black (lightest grey all the way to black):


I have thought of a few names for this one.... Teal Feathers (a play on tail feathers) is the best I have come up with. So I thought let's have a naming game. You tell me what you would call it and I will pick my favorite of the names. Whoever's name I like best will get a little prize. I have to put a time limit on it though so let's say Monday morning at 8 AM Pacific time. I will pick a winner then.


You know Teal, Turquoise, Aqua is my favorite color so there were a lot more I could have put in this bundle. There is an abundance of that color here :)

I hope you are having a colorific Saturday!

Wow - Sunnybec - great minds think alike and at the very same moment???

Are you a "Becky", too? If so... this is very weird!

beaquilter said...

aquatics delight....

shirley said...

Mermaid aqua, I love it or Pigeon blue

The New Mrs. said...

I refuse to use a color in mine. These colors remind me of the Gulf of Mexico on a clear day, so my vote is "Life's a Beach" :D

Melissa Corry said...

So you got me thinking about crayons so I went to their website and looked up Teal. Did you know that it wasn't an official crayola color until 1990 and it replaced Lemon Yellow which was retired to the Crayola Hall of Fame :) Who knew there was a Crayola Hall of fame?? Random

So onto some names. I liked

Teals the Tops
Foamy
Salty Sea

♥Duff said...

Temperamental Tealwinds

Tempestuous Teals

♥♥

Crickets Corner said...

Oceans Edge
Caribbean Dreams
Aqua Frost
Tantalizing Teal
Tealtempting

Sorry, couldn't stop once I got started. Teal/Aqua is my favorite colo also and this is such a beautiful combination. I am sooo envious.

stephmabry said...

Oceans Thirteen was my first thought, like the films but much more interesting to he fabric obsessed like us ;)

Crickets Corner said...

Now I'll be thinking of nothing but names for this group all day. Just one more and I promise I won't leave another one. :)

Aqua Addiction

Lynn said...

Aqua Kiss
Ocean of Teal
Turquoise Waters

Or how about just mine, mine, mine! What lovely bundles.I am so glad you have started mixing lines in color groups.

Phyllis said...

Wow! Such pretty fabric..love all of it! Here are a few names I thought of...

Aqua Waves
Two for Teal
Teal Time
Aqua Bliss

Karen said...

How about "Totally Teal"

Fiona @ Poppy Makes said...

What a gorgeous bundle!
How about Tropical Diving, or Aqua Depths.
Those colours look like tropical water going from shallow to deep - beautiful!

Heather said...

Caribbean Delight. The colors remind me so much of the colors of the ocean in the Caribbean.

Nancy said...

Teal There Was You
As sung by the Beatles (with apologies!)

There were bells on a hill
But I never heard them ringing
No, I never heard them at all
Teal there was you

There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging
No, I never saw them at all
Teal there was you

Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me
in sweet fragrant meadows
Of dawn and dew

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No, I never heard it at all
Teal there was you

Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows
Of dawn and dew

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No, I never heard it at all
Teal there was you
Teal there was you

Pat said...

Pacific Islands The fabrics reminded me of the islands.

Heidi Staples said...

These are beautiful. I would call them Wading Pool.

Lynda said...

Tea-l-ishous or aqua-lishous because those colors are good enough to eat!

iluvmybugs said...

I would simply call these:

"A-bundle of Aqua"

~Terry~

slfranks4 said...

I thought perhaps
Teal Twist
or
Seaglass

Melissa @ Sew BitterSweet Designs said...

It makes me think of the ocean and sea and all the different shades of blue that you see. I like "Shades of the Sea".

(heck it even makes me think of the different shades of blue you see in Lake Tahoe) Tahoe Teal maybe?

heartsease54 said...

How about Caribbean Crush.

kc said...

(S)Teal Me Away

diane said...

Darn that heartsease54, I was going to say Caribbean Calm....so now I will say Azure Seas

Josie McRazie said...

Aqua Dreams
Aqua-tic Envy

Jeanne Gwin said...

Key West Morn That is what it reminds me of, the gulf on one side and the ocean on the other and where they join is where I'll be Teal We Meet Again on another beautiful "Key West Morn"

scottylover said...

I think it looks like a blue lagoon, lighter close to the shore, then darker the farther out you go. Beautiful no matter what you name it! :)

Sandy A

Diann said...

My suggestion is Swimming Pool because that's what the fabrics remind me of.

Ella said...

Bubblebath! ("Calgon, take me away!" totally pops into my head, but I didn't suggest it because of the product name.)

Brita said...

Gulfstream -- that's what it reminds me of. Or Gulf Breezes. Sighhhhhh.

Missy said...

Talk about Teal! That's my choice

Caren said...

Oooh - it's TEALtastic!!!

bee said...

oh such pretty fabric groupings. love all those teal/aquas. I'd call it Sea Breeze. it reminds me of the color of the Caribbean water and warm air. :)

hennies.pennies said...

How about Wheely Teal... sort of a play on Really Teal and most of your prints have roundish patterns. Have a blessed day, Kathy

thorngrove said...

"Indoor Swimmingpool"
Because the shades remind me of light dancing along the top of the water in an indoor swimming pool, graduating down through the fabrics to the colours of the shaded corners.

Rebeckah Austin said...

"Mediterranean mist". It looks like refreshing sea mist that comes from the surf as waves crash against a tropical island!

Archie the wonder dog said...

Oh, this is hard! How about 'Crest of a wave' or 'By the coast' or 'Cliff edge' or 'Sea spray' (because it reminds me of the waves hitting the cliffs/sea wall).

Flying Blind... said...

Aquabatics?

Nancy D. said...

Teal Kind of Day Bundle or
Aqua Addiction Bundle or
Big Blue Wonder bundle or
Mermaid's Dream bundle

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I love coming up with names - the floodgates just open up once I get started.


Wading Pool
A Perfect Sky
Let's Make A Teal
I'd Rather Be Blue
Remembering Your Blue Eyes
Remembering Ol' Blue Eyes
The Blues Are Good Thing
Born To Be Blue

I guess I'd better stop now.

Jessica Jo said...

All those florals and dots got me thinking underwater so maybe something like "Mer-mountain" or even "Mermaid Mountain" because it's a mountain of fabric? and they have mountains under the sea, you know. I bet there are fields of underwater flowers much like those in the prints you chose. "Mermaid meadow" maybe?

quilary said...

I thought of "dawn till dusk".

mammafairy said...

I thought Aqua Dreaming, but I see someone else got something similar already, so all I can say is that it is beautiful. Perhaps

Aqua dolce

would do?

Mama Pea said...

Before I looked at the comments, the first thing that came to my mind was "Teal We Meet Again," too! LOL

I sure love that tangerine grouping.

We'll Be Teal?

Danny said...

How about Ice Ice, Baby? Or Dawn of Aquarius... Age of Aquarius? Crystal Waters? Caribbean Breeze? Or what about something totally ridiculous, like "The Teal Bundle"... :)

b78ayers said...

That stack looks just like an
"Iceberg" in Alaska. Or maybe like the "Hydrangea" in my yard!

Lindi said...

Crystal Clear
Crystal Waters
Crystal Clear Waters

I did have more, but the others are all taken! lol

Helen L said...

I'd call it Turquoise Temptations!!

Jennie P. said...

I love naming contests. So fun!
Since you said Teal feather, that made me think of that oldies song. So one name I think of is:
Shake your Teal feathers

Others I thought of:
Crystal Blue Persuasion (another song I love)
Reflection in the fountain
Wishing Fountain
Coral Reef
Scuba Divin'
The Jellyfish Blues
Lady Sings the Blues
Rejuvination Springs
Lady of the Lake

That's about all I have for now.

Candice said...

If you flip it upside down, it would be "rising moon"- I also thought of "i spy clouds" and "Summer days twilight"

Crafty Tokyo Mama said...

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Rachelle said...

C. said...

Have you ever been to/seen Havasupai? The water is exactly that color. Here's a link if you haven't seen it: http://www.havasupaitribe.com/havasu.html

So one thought I had was Havasu Falls.

But it also reminds me of my honeymoon in the Caribbean, so how about Caribbean Honeymoon? Or Nassau?

Whatever you name it, I love it!

lauraluvsloons said...

Those beauties look like "teal treasures" to me

Jen said...

"Seafoam at Sunset" - I love the darker teals - And Oh My Goodness - if you added some firey oranges....

Rhonda G said...

Paradise Cove. It reminds me of a beautiful peaceful cove somewhere in the Caribbeans. Just gorgeous.

Colleen said...

Aqualicious!

gina said...

Such a fun contest - I love reading all the suggestions in the comments!

The first thing that came to mind for me was (Paul) "Newman's Eyes" but I wasn't sure if it's okay to use a celebrity's name in the title...

My other suggestion is "Tealed with a Kiss"

Looking forward to seeing other color combinations in your store - these are gorgeous!

Mom C said...

Tealtime or time for teal, a play of tea time. I was thinking of spring and a tea party on the grass and what a darling tablecloth or lawn quilt those fabric would make. You groups look choice.

Marcia B said...

What fun & creative names!

How 'bout:
Turquoise in Paradise
Blue Heaven
Aqua Surrender
I've Got the Blues
Serenity in Teal

WandaFish said...

Maritime Medley :)

Bettina said...

I'll throw
Song of the Sea
Whale of a Tale
and
When the shark bites

in the ring...just because I love the fact that your bundle has aqua, teal, petrol and blue hues in it...just like the sea (anyone spot the Bobby Darin connection?)

Let's go sailing!

Cheri said...

How about Azure Isle.

jyturriondobeitia@yahoo.com said...

Mermaid's Delight! The colors are beautiful and remind me of the darkest deep sea blue to the shimmery water at the surface of a wave straight to the summer sky--gorgeous. :)

Jeannie D said...

OK, here goes...

"SEA OF LOVE"

"LOVE STASH"

Just love these colors!

Becky said...
