The Name Game: Pinkadot Quilts

I'm so happy to have Kelly here from Pinkadot Quilts. Polka dots are one of my favorites! Kelly does beautiful applique work, something I only aspire to do. You'll enjoy her bright and cheerful colors.

Kelly, how did you choose the name, Pinkadot Quilts?

I had been reading blogs for about a year before I decided to jump in. I knew I wanted something that gave a hint that it was about quilting, a lot of  good ones were taken. I really like pink and I really like polka dot fabrics,  Pinkadot Quilts!  So there you go, not too complicated.
Were there other names you considered, and can you share any of them with us? 
The only other one I considered is a little "out there"....Touch Pearls, Wave. It is a silly saying my sisters and I always used to say. Think of the queen sitting in a carriage waving to the people. Touch the pearls, wave,..... touch the pearls, wave.....yeah we were a little weird. I just thought there was nothing about it that said quilts or sewing and would anyone ever remember it?
Now that you are recognized by Pinkadot Quilts, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?

Yes I am happy with it, people always say, Oh I like that! when they hear the name of my blog. If I ever wanted to do a logo all I would need is a pink dot!
You can never go wrong with polka dots, that's for sure! Thanks for playing along, Kelly.

Please stop by Pinkadot Quilts and say hi to Kelly. She has a lot of great tutorials, too. 

Next week Camilla will be here from Candied Apples. Another interesting name!
