The Name Game: Ellison Lane Quilts

Are you ready for a beautiful explosion of color? I'm thrilled to have Jennifer here from Ellison Lane Quilts. I have read her blog for a long time, and we are currently in a bee together.
 Note: Don't you think our logos look great together?
 Jennifer, how did you choose the name for your blog?
The name for my blog came from my daughter's middle name- Ellison. To me Ellison is such a pretty, feminine name, and I thought Ellison Lane sounded like a lovely place so that is what I went with. In my mind I imagine a lovely tree-lined street with charming cottages, stone paths, picket fences and rambling flowers.  
Where there other names you considered, and can you share any of them with us?

I think the only other one I considered was Sewing in the South since I am a born and raised Southerner but in the end, I liked Ellison Lane the best because it is so personal. 
Now that you are recognized by Ellison Lane Quilts, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
(don't you just love the touches of orange??)
I am definitely happy with the name although sometimes I think about dropping "Quilts" which I think would be fine too. I need to have new labels made and am thinking about just Ellison Lane on those- walking on the wild side, I know! :) 
(I really want one of these zip pouches...)
If you haven't already been to Jennifer's blog, please go say hi, and spend some time looking around. She has a great series she is currently running, The Summer Sewing Contest, with a blog hop and lots of fabulous giveaways. You will not want to miss this one.
