The Name Game: That Girl...That Quilt

This week I am so happy to have Jennifer here from That Girl...That Quilt. Jennifer and I have been friends for quite awhile, sharing some of the more personal details about our lives, along with the passion for quilting that we both share. It's so easy to share things with her--very comfortable--and I'm sure that's the way she is in real life too. Jennifer lives in the Dallas area, and so does my brother, so I am looking forward to meeting her in person soon.

How did you choose the name for That Girl...That Quilt?
It's silly how I chose the name, That Girl... That Quilt.  My husband, Steve, and I like to joke around a lot.  Early on when we were dating, I would tell him funny things that happened throughout my day and I would say, "I was almost that girl who..." or "I was that girl".  In return when he would {and still does} tease me and say, "you are so that girl" or "don't be that girl".  So when I fell in love with quilting I became That Girl who is covered in thread... That Girl who buys more fabric than clothes... That Girl who wishes she could sew while sitting in church... That Girl who free motion quilts her sleeve to her quilt... etc.
Were there other names you considered, and can you share any of them with us?
I don't recall thinking about other names.  When I set my blog up one late night I typed it and liked the way it looked.  I didn't put much thought into because I never really planned on my blog being much; I just knew that I loved to write and wanted a place to keep an online journal of my quilts and thoughts.

Now that you are recognized by That Girl...That Quilt, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
I am happy with the name and don't think I could ever change it.  It fits me and my personality.   I am That Girl... my daughter even knows me by that name and freely shares it with her friends, teachers and anyone else she thinks should know!
 If you aren't already a big fan of Jennifer, I hope you will go over to her blog and say hello. You will not disappointed so plan on spending some time looking around. Not only is she a great designer, she is a wonderful writer.
And, if you are looking for a project, That Girl is hosting a quilt-along. It's called Chasing Chevrons.  
Jennifer is always organized and full of helpful information so this will be a great quilt-along, even if you are fairly new to quilting. So think about joining in--it's going to be a lot of fun.
