The Name Game: Felicity Quilts

I can't tell you how excited I am to have Felicity here today. I have been a huge fan of hers since I read her first blog post. One of these days we must meet in person. Even just seeing her face on my computer screen cheers me up. 
(Felicity let me choose the pictures for this post--now YOU want to meet her in person, too, right?)

How did you choose the name for your blog?


I was deciding on a name as I was registering for a Google account so I kind of felt under the gun to just decide already! I tried to think of something clever yet memorable, but I'm not really that good on the fly. I started the blog as an online journal to document my work so I was focused on making it about me, but keeping it simple. I landed on Felicity Quilts. Since my name means "happiness", my blog name is a bit of a double-entendre in that it's me, Felicity, and my quilts, but it's also about the happiness that quilting brings to my life.
 Were there other names you considered, and can you share any of them with us?
Easy Going Modern--an original pattern
I thought about Quilty Spice in reference to the Spice Girls (which just aged me quite a bit, I think), but I wanted a bit more of "me" in the title. When I was playing around with the meaning of Felicity, I thought about incorporating the word Joy or Bliss into my blog name, but Felicity Quilts just seemed to fit the best. And for some reason, I also like that the initials FQ also mean Fat Quarter (quilt nerd alert!).
 (These quilts were both ribbon winners at QuiltCon)
Now that you are recognized by Felicity Quilts, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
Well, I don't know that I'm all that "known" but I'm still happy with my blog name. Were I to start fresh today, I'd still choose it so I guess that says something!
 (I won't lie--this is my all-time favorite. It showed up in my mail one day. Unbelievable, right? It lives happily in my sewing room where it brings me so much joy each time I look at it. It is also on my blog side bar.)
Did I mention Felicity loves shoes? I might be a tiny bit envious of this pair. 
Please stop by Felicity Quilts and say hi. Spend some time looking around. There is LOTS to see. Each Friday, she hosts Friday Felicities, where she posts a little bit of something making her happy and has a linky party where you can share as well. 
Thanks for playing along this week, Felicity!
Coming up:
Jake, Generation Q
Me (yes, Simply Miss Luella will host)
Sheila, Bluepatch Quilter
Carly, Citric Sugar
Susan, Patchwork and Play
