The Name Game: My Fabric Obsession

Remember those good old days when you spent more time reading blogs and getting to know people a bit better than just through comments on Instagram? I have been following Becky for quite a few years and I'm happy to finally have here today for The Name Game.

How did you choose the name for your blog?

I was already blogging as a scrapbooker and when the quilting bug bit me, I slowly stopped scrap booking and was quilting all the time.  I wanted a new blog name that would fit what I was blogging about. I tend to become obsessive about all the things I'm interested in and quilting was no exception. I think about when I'm not in my sewing room, am constantly planning/plotting my next project and sometimes even dream about it! And when you start quilting, it's all about the fabric of course!
Were there other names you considered, and can you share them with us?

I honestly can't remember but I'm sure there were lots of plays on Sew/So involved! I just remember that I kept coming back to My Fabric Obsession so it stuck.

Now that you are known by My Fabric Obsession, are you happy with it or do you wish you could change it?

Somehow when picking a blog name it feels monumental, like something you are going to have with you forever. and in a way, it is. This is your brand should you decide to market yourself. So for me it was tough to commit to something so permanent (the same reason why I'll most likely never have a tattoo), but ultimately, the name was simple and effective. So yes, I am happy with the name. Although I will admit that I wish I had picked something shorter. It can be a tough one to fit on labels! 
Thanks for playing along this week, Becky. You can following along with Becky here and on Instagram (@myfabricobsession).

Next week Amy from Diary of a Quilter will be here.

I agree that blogging lets us get to know the bloggers we follow while IG and FB are short and often quite cryptic/mysterious. Lovely quilts shared today!

I completely relate to having a long blog name...I have never gotten professional labels for that very blog name is long, and so is my real name....sharpie please, lol! Her name is a perfect fit, tho, that is for sure!

Her work is beautiful. I really miss many of the "old" bloggers now that everyone has gone to IG.

Another fun blog name to discover. As quilters we are all just a little obsessed with fabric. So true what Becky said about picking a blog name feeling kind of monumental since it becomes your brand. Yet it seems most all of us are pretty happy with our final name.
