The ladies who run our local Thimbleberries Club challenged us to make mini quilts this year--we can bring one a month for show and tell and each mini qualifies us for one entry in the end-of-the-year prize raffle. This will be my second mini for the year.
One of the prerequisites to qualify for a ticket is that the mini must have a label, which--at least to me--means coming up with a name for the quilt. Maybe I was stuck for a name because the quilt was made up of a hodgepodge of mixed blocks. Maybe it was the Chef Gordon Ramsey Kitchen Nightmares marathon I watched last weekend. In any event, "the dog's dinner" popped into my mind. THEN--and thank goodness because who wants a quilt called The Dog's Dinner?--that led me to think of leftovers. And since the leftover mini Midnight Sky blocks were what started the whole thing, and I worked on both the large and small blocks most of Saturday, it seemed like Saturday Night Leftovers worked for a title.
While I was writing this post, Stitch jumped up on the desk and started whacking the mini, trying to make sure it was dead, I suppose.
Maybe I need to make a new label: "Tuesday Night Kill"
