We just liked the name of of Patty's Quilt, Yes Ma'am Damn!, and the story behind it.
Patty Murphy writes in her blog:
Yes Ma’am Damn! won three blue ribbons at the 2006 Georgia State Fair: one for best piecing, one for best machine quilting, and a blue ribbon because it’s awesome (my words, not those of the judges)!
The quilt was named for my friend. She tells me I was “raised right” because I always say ma’am when responding to her. My friend is in her early sixties, so it seems to me that it’s a polite reply. She is a quilter and got me onto a batik strip piecing kick. I took all my odds and ends of batik strips and stitched them together, cut the pieces into squares, then triangles, then assembled the parts.
