To kick off the new series is Paul Hallinger of Evil Demon Devil Dog. Paul represents a first for this series (but not the last)--the first male quilter to play along.
So please welcome Paul to the new version of The Name Game.
I have followed Paul on Instagram for a long time (and you should too-- @evildemondevildog). There are so many things in his instagram feed that I want to make--he has a great sense of color. This is one of my recent favorites. It appeals to me on so many levels--the blocks as they increase in size, the beautiful combination of colors. This is definitely on my to-do list for 2016.
Things became especially interesting after the publication of Modern Bee, a collaborative book written by Lindsay Conner.
A few of the quilters participating chose Neon Ninja Star, the quilt I had made for the book.
Paul's version gave new meaning to the quilt's name, as his version was literally a ninja version. Isn't it great?
Do you have a favorite quilt block? You could have a fused glass version too. Send me an email. :)
How did you choose the name for your blog?
The blog and instagram moniker came at about the same time. Evildemondevildog is from my dog Cody, who during his puppy years came to earn this nickname. He inspires me so having him as my blog/IG co-conspirator seemed right.
Were there other names you considered, and can you share any of them with us?
Now that you are recognized by evildemondevildog, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
I sometimes think that it might be too off-putting. I sometimes think that for marketing, etc, maybe I should go back to something like Iamarainbowkitten or Paulandhisdog. When I start to think about it, I still go back to being the evildemondevildog 😊
I want to thank Paul for playing along this week. You can learn more about him on his blog, and be sure to follow him on Instagram (@evildemondevildog).
I have lots of interesting people who will be sharing their blog/instagram names in the coming weeks, so I hope you will follow me on Instagram as well (@liveacolorfullife). Additionally, I'm always open to suggestions, so if you are curious about how someone chose their name, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
