Finding the perfect title for a quilt

One of the hardest things for me when making a quilt is to come up with a title. When I made these 3 quilts nothing seemed right until I realized they already had names.

Quilt 266

Quilt 267

Quilt 268

Each one of these started with fabric I painted with Setacolor paint.
I looked at each piece of fabric and it gave me a general diretion to travel when making the quilts.
I added other fabrics on top of the original fabric bases.
These quilts have a lot of stitching to enhance the designs.
I also added a lot of shading to change the colors in certain areas.
Each quilt also has its own unique quilting design to enhance the art.
When I look at these quilts I feel good and they bring sunshine to a dreary day.

I also have a new puzzle for you today. I hope you enjoy it.

Your attention to detail shines as usual....I'm particularly impressed with how the color changes of the binding blends into the work.

Hope I can get to your exhibit during my visit with the Lighthouse Quilters in Racine early next year!

Thanks for your comment about the "binding" Mary.
The edge is actually finished with a zig zag stitch. I stitch around the edge multiple times changing the thread and stitch size to get the look I want.
I hope you get to my show too Mary.
The Anderson Art Center is right across the street from the gallery we had the Wearable Art show so many years ago.
