It's all in a Name...or is it? ...Mystery....??

Mystery...Monday?? O, wait...that was yesterday...
So...it will have to be (once again)
Mystery Tuesday
It's a bit of a Mystery to me...how a quilt shop owner
might come up with the name for their store. 

They might just inherit the name...or, maybe they had the
 opportunity to "create" a NEW name for their store.
Below is a list of Quilt Shop Names...and, the list is just a
 to get YOU started...thinking!

Three Ducks on a Roof 
Sew Unique Quilt Shop
Dream Crafters Quilt Shop
Speckled Hen Quilts
Patchwork Plus
OK Quiltworks
Prairie Quilts
The Pink Poodle Quilt Shop
The Bunk House
Roundabout Quilting
 Quilted Angel
Tea Time Calicos
Purple Frog Quilts
Tater Patch
Rumpled Quilt Skins

What do YOU think?...did I make up any of these quilt store
 names?  Or are they all real store names?  And, I'm thinkin'
it could be great fun if YOU might list a few Quilt Store names.
....Maybe you have an "original" idea for naming a quilt store.
 OR,...maybe YOU've heard of some fun and/or unusual
store names in your quilt shop travels? 

To enter to win
 this week's Mystery Monday (Tuesday)...
please leave a comment
 with at least 5 Quilt Store names...
they can be real or just REALLY original (clever, funny, etc).

~~ entries close Saturday, April 28th, midnight MT ~~
~ must be a follower to win ~

YEP!! It's back flipping...for last week's
Mystery Monday WINNER!!
