lifelines 1Lifelines I, 20" x 20" - Ricky Tims (2010)

The little quilt above was born out of samples I created in my recent retreats. The sharp spikes are set in seams, not applique. I like the way this turned out and I got many suggestions for names. Many folks seemed to think it reminded them of clothes on a line. Others saw an elephant. Some of the suggestions were specific titles for this particular quilt, but I see this as the start of s series so I wanted a name that I could tack on a roman numeral. So the clothesline got me thinking and while I diverged from the suggestion I have settled on Lifelines - like the unique ones on our hands. Titles are always intriguing to me. Do you ever struggle with titles?
