What's in A Name? Giveaway Over

Update: Congrats to #90 - I Love Baby Quilts!
You guys came up with great names -- screen porch, rose red, rose petit, prairie....


Here's the link to the collection. (I put their logo farther down in the post).
It'll make you smile.




" A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."

--William Shakespeare




True.




Such a pretty, pretty collection of

vintage-inspired florals in pink and red.



When I heard the name of the collection that these


gorgeous florals belong to,


I did do an eyebrow raise.




"Rawhide"


by moda


Granted the other pieces
(that we don't have)
have a western flair.




C'mon partner,

let's go down to the quilt store &

get us some Rawhide.


Today's giveaway is for 5 fat quarters.
Leave a comment to be entered in the drawing --


What would you have called this collection of floral prints?



Random drawing later tonight.

    ReplyDelete

  9. Where the Wild Roses Are

    Beauty fabric! Now I've got to dig up the whole line so I can see the western prints and see if the name matches:)

    ReplyDelete
  10. How about "Roses for Mum"?
    Great fabrics ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Rosie the Riveter. I'm gonna have to see the rest of this line, Rawhide just doesn't seem like a match. =)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I thought of Grandma's Rose Garden as it has this old fashioned, granny knitting in the cottage feel about it....

    Love it though and saw it in an earlier post... it is that I have to many unmade quilts in my pile or I would have ordered it... It is in my list however for when I unexpectedly have some time (ha ha ha) and whizz through them...

    ReplyDelete
  13. What beautiful fabrics, no that name just doesn't fit.
    How about "Dusty Rose" or "Bella Rose".

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. How about "Blooming Range Roses" ? That kinda adds in the wild west feel and incorporates the roses. Or maybe "My Wild Western Rose"

    ReplyDelete
  15. wouldnt that be a cool job to come up with fabric line names? i would love it...of course, not very good at it, but fun. Roses are Red? Rosie? Everything Coming up roses? ok, ill keep my day job.

    ReplyDelete
  16. lol - now that's not what I'd have called it at all!!!!

    Mind you, cow poop is very good for your garden.....

    ReplyDelete
  17. Posies in Pink?

    ReplyDelete
  18. How about Rose's Roses? All of the above names are better than Rawhide for such beautiful fabric.
    Did ya see that quilt!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would call it Secret Garden...
    What a gorgeous collection! I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's hilarious that the line was named "Rawhide"! I would have called it "Romance". I am still smiling about "Rawhide"!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Beautiful colors! Life among the roses?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like your throwback to Shakespeare -- "A rose by any other name" for the name of the line. Too wordy? Perhaps. Love the fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Bella Rosa! Beautiful Rose!

    Yup. These need to come live at my house. Pretty please?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wildrose...but I think that name is taken. They are pretty this is for sure!

  33. Once my mil wanted to paint her bedroom a peachy-pink color and my fil said no and she showed him the paint chip that said it was called ... rawhide.
    I'd called these 'pretty in pink'

    ReplyDelete
  34. I recently purchased some of this line when I was in Texas. I loved the ramblin rose look as well as the western theme. Lovely fabby and I can't wait to start a project. Of course, I could use a little more!

    ReplyDelete
  35. definitely not rawhide! probably something like vintage rose garden ... absolutely love that cream rose on pink background one, kind of reminds me of vintage wallpaper from the 40s ....

    ReplyDelete
  36. Maybe Cottage Flair? The prints you showed are very pretty though!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well I'm not really sure what I WOULD call it, but I can tell you what I WOULD NOT call it...Rawhide! That's pretty funny! I love the paisley one!

    ReplyDelete
  38. No, rawhide doesn't seem to fit, how about Texas Rose? Or should it be yellow with that name?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gramma's Garden. My Gramma had a gorgeous garden and this fabric reminds me of it.

  40. Color me contrary... I think rawhide is perfect...It's a soft cowgirl-friendly, prairie-loving print collection.

    I can so see someone back during the cattle rustling era go to the local general store and make a dress with some of those prints.

    Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Pick me! I love these! Just ordered some from your ebay store the other day- I have a fabric addiction!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My name would be Cowgirl roses.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Nana's Garden...

    So soft and pretty, just like Nana...

    ReplyDelete
  44. hmmmm.... I would name it "Kisses From the Country"

    ReplyDelete
  45. When I saw it I thought of Strawberry Sherbet... random I know, but it looks good enough to eat :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi, Maybe call it 'Antique Rose' or 'Rose Petit'. Very pretty and I would really love to have some!:) Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I don't know, but def not rawhide! Rawhide is something I give my dogs, and these gorgeous fabrics would NOT be allowed near my pooches.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would call it Prairie Rose but I like it either way!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Western Roses would seem to tie in with the Rawhide segment of the line IMHO

    ReplyDelete
  50. How about Pink Seek? I love it no matter what!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Certainly not "Rawhide". Perhaps I would call it "Rose Eloquence".

    ReplyDelete
  52. How about Prairie Rose? or
    Mamaw's Housecoat? (smile) Thanks for the givaway! Polly

    ReplyDelete
  53. " The Rose in Bloom"
    " Cabbage Rose"
    " Rosamund"
    Beautiful fabric,lovely designs, wrong name.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Rose Cottage... reminds me of a little stone cottage surrounded by a rose garden. Sounds like some place I should be right now....

    Thanks for the giveaway!
    -Kimmer

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think I would have called it Courtship Roses. It reminds me of the romance of old fashioned courtships and the bouquet of roses a gentleman might have brought with him.
    Hopeless Romantic would have been good too, cause that's what I am!

    ReplyDelete
  56. If we were going to keep the Western Theme....I'd have called it "Out and About with Rosie." "Rosie Chaps" might be fun too :)

    Smiles,
    Kelly

    ReplyDelete
  57. It made me think of the children's song "English country garden" and now I've got the song stuck in my head.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Roses of the West would be much better! Great giveaway! Please enter me!

    ReplyDelete
  59. My local store has this line and i giggle every time i see these pretty pieces next to the horses.
