It’s Tisket A Tasket Day!

Were you expecting a turkey in the basket? Well here’s the problem…I can’t appliqué a cute turkey. At least not inside a basket. Just can’t do it. You’d be asking each other “what happened at Bunny Hill?”.

So, because of my turkey problem, you get a squirrel in your basket! She’s a staple here at Bunny Hill. I’ve used her in several other patterns, and there’s no doubt you’ll be seeing her again. She’s got a bushy tail and she’s plump. Pleasingly plump! And the best thing is, she’s EASY to appliqué!

If you read my newsletter this morning, you already know about my contest. If you don’t get my newsletter (you can sign up on my blog), here’s the information on the contest:

Name this little squirrel, and you could win a Bunny Hill gift basket! Post a comment or email me with the name you love. If we choose your name, you’ll win this gift basket! (If you already have the pattern, you can choose another.) I’ll announce the winning name on November 26th. You’ll be seeing my squirrel in future patterns, only next time she’ll have a name!

Gift Basket

Good luck! Employees and family members of Bunny Hill Designs are not eligible to enter regardless of how brilliant the name might be.

    He looks gorgeous in his basket.
    Hugs from Holland

  • Karin - I don't know why but I immediately thought of Squidge – maybe it's the Sq sound in squirrel. Anyway thank you so much for this delightful BOM.

  • Anonymous - She looks like a Penny to me – or Penelope if she's naughty and in trouble with her mother.


  • Hippy at Heart - I think the squirrel is much better than a turkey. Turkeys have no relevance to us here in England in November only December, so the squirrel is much more internationally friendly. I think she should be called Scatz, scatty, like me.ReplyCancel

  • Sabine - say Betty or Nutty the Squirrel :-)

    Best wishes from the Netherlands

  • Carin - I love the squirrel and have good memories about one.
    When my mother passed away in 2001 and we walk to the church for her funeral, right in front of us there came a squirrel out the bushes and sat right in front of us on the pad. He/she looked at us if she was going to say: Don't be sad and enjoy the memories you have about your mother.
    Every time when I now see a squirrel it put a smile on my face ! Okay … now the name …
    When I read this I thought instantly of the name: mister plumpy or a totaly diffirent name: sqeeze (I don't know why this last name came up LOL)ReplyCancel

  • Quilty Ramblings - Peek-a

    …as in Peek-a-Boo….

    I can just imaging the squirrel climbing into the basket and then popping up when someone came to look in

  • Kerry - Greetings From Down-under, Anne,
    We do not have squirrels in Australia…………..but we do have bush-tail possums and they are a pretty good substitute!
    I think "Babushka" would be a good name after that wonderful "bushy" tail and curvy body! Maybe "Babs" for short! I think she has a touch of
    elegance about her combined with that squirrelly secret nature!ReplyCancel

  • Ann - I like the name Addie, because she's such a sweet addition to your family! Thank you so much for sharing these blocks, they are all wonderful!


  • Crissie - I think she should be called Ms. Izzy .. we have lots of squirrels in our yard… they are always scolding my house cats, swatting their tails and making such a noise. We use to feed them until they became so demanding they were crawling up and down our patio door and they are always zinging and zagging in and our of my flowers hidding they peanuts. I don't even think they like peanuts they much, they'd much rather have walnuts! They will eat them right away… I saved a whole nest full of baby's from a blue J that had knocked their nest out of the tree, no fur on their little bodies yet. I helped the Mama come and get them and take them up another tree.. Poor Mama worked so hard. I sat there on the lawn, making a squirrel sound to help her find her babies.. Quiltingly Yours, Crissie.. Martinez, CAReplyCancel

  • Sandi - I love this month's block. Makes me think of my dad and the squirrels he would feed. He took care of them like they were family pets. And in a way, they were, as he could put out the corn for them and then go in and sit down with a cup of coffee and watch the squirrels as he sat in his chair in the living room. I think I would name this squirrel "Zippy". That's the only way to describe how squirrels seem to zip around the yard, gathering acorns and such, then scurrying up and down the trees with them. I wasn't sure if the name is to be left here or entered at your newsletter so I signed up for it and will find out. :-)ReplyCancel

  • Bonniedoo - The squirrels around our house are cheeky little characters..I would call her 'Cheeky".ReplyCancel

  • Toni - I think the name should be Patches..I love your blocks thanks so much for giving us such a gift with these free patterns..Toni

  • Karla - "Chipper" squirrels are so fun to watch because Adam and God named them right. They are so squirrelly watching them make decisions. No wonder they get squished on the road, poor things. Get one in your house and look out total disaster. But they are so cute and fun to watch along with appliquing one or sewing one up to see how they come into your blocks.ReplyCancel

  • Chris@Cats On My Quilts - I live in NH where there are literally a million squirrels so I should know squirrels. But she really reminds me of a friend from years ago who used to drive around in her convertible Mustang with a scarf flying out behind her, sometimes with a tiara on too, so I think her name is Merle in honor of my long lost friend Merle.ReplyCancel

  • Jean C. - When I read your monthly msg. this a.m. the first name I thought of for your Squirrel was Acorn… but I'm wondering if it ought to have a last name too… soooo, how about A. Corn Squirrel. LoL… wouldn't want it to go into the world without a full name!
    It's really a cute basket Anne… now if I could only get motivated and less distracted to start on the entire years worth of blocks! LoL…ReplyCancel

  • Monique - I was thinking of a name that could incorporate Bunny Hill and was playing with some names and came up with "Tilly" from Bunny Hill(-y)..haha. Love your designs and am so happy to see posts from England ( have a cousin there) and the Netherlands ( I was born there).ReplyCancel

  • Thimbleanna - Hahaha! I'm assuming that little note about employees not eligible is for the fabulous Brigette — 'cause I'm betting she's come up with some great names! Someone already took my suggestion — Sally!ReplyCancel

  • arkie - Maybe Chatty? Or Pockets?

    Love the material used for this squirrel.ReplyCancel

    is Brownie, as she/he is in on

  • Wendy - Good choice for not having a turkey in the basket. I didn't read all the names, I hope this one isn't already posted. How about the obvious "Nut Tales"???ReplyCancel

  • Annelein Design - Wauw, what a lot of messages everyone put in.

    I read some of them but for as far I can see these are not named…

  • cornbreadandbeansquilting - I love old fashioned names, they immediately make the character seem so romantic….so how about "Harriet."
    Harriet is always such an inquisitive squirrel.ReplyCancel

  • Miss Jean - Well, you have Arnie and Allie so how about naming the squirrel Amelia. It looks like a feminine little girl and with the Amelia Erhart movie coming out, it would be timely.ReplyCancel

  • Pam P - How about Gracie? Every squirrel I've seen has grace & poise – and great balance too!!ReplyCancel

  • kcenya1950 - I think Trieste would be a good name — squirrels do climb trees after all and this squirrel is so elegant she needs a tres French name don't you think? Great block and I can understand how difficult making a cute turkey would be. They just don't seem cute or cuddly.ReplyCancel

  • Letterpress - Thank you so much for these patterns. I look forward to them every month.

    Good luck with the name thing. Many of the ones I would have suggested have already been posted, but I do have one more. It will be interesting to see what you choose? About the gender of the squirrel: the posts seem evenly divided, you refer to the squirrel as feminine. That's why I suggest a variant of the name Betsy–a nickname for Elizabeth–and call her Bitsy.

    Thanks again.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy - Since you are calling the squirrel "her" in your post, I really like the name Ella. Squirrels are special at our house also…my FIL used to do ceramics and that was his signature mark on all of his pieces. I cherish each and every one that I own!
    Love this months basket also. Have a Happy Turkey Day!ReplyCancel

  • we added chickens - with all due respect to and inspiration from Beatrix Potter I would say Little NutkinReplyCancel

  • darcey - The first name that pops into my head is Hazel, as in the hazelnuts I keep seeing the little squirrels scurry away with in my back yard. I also think Peanut is a cute little name.

  • Doris Anne - Hi Anne,

  • Amy Elizabeth - "Nutty Nellie" came to mind first…or "Bitsy" is a cute name. I also like the names "Acorn", "Nutsy" and the name "Stasher" is kinda funny to me. I think I could be called "Stasher" too but it is definately not nuts I am stashing…you know what I am talking about fellow quilters :)

    How about calling your sweet little squirrel
    Little Miss Butterscotch
    or Little Miss B since she lives at Bunny Hill!ReplyCancel

  • sue tokash - I think this month is my favorite block. I just love squirrels and a crow too. I can just imagine the conversation the two are having. And since both squirrels and crows are very verbal I am sure it is a lengthy conversation. Leading me to my name for the squirrel-Gabby. Thanks again for this wonderful BOM.

  • Love to Applique - I would call her Peanut, that is what I call my two year old grandaughter. Hugs DebbieReplyCancel

  • Kami - I was so excited by this BOM I love everything about the block. I would name your squirrel–Cinnamon. Actually, my first thought was Chelsea, but I didn't think your puppy would like having a Squirrel named after her. I can't wait to get started this weekend.ReplyCancel

  • Nana Price - I love your BOM series! I'm having so much fun! Thanks!

    I call all our squirrels, "CHESTER". They all must be named that, because they always come when I call it!

    My yard is their storage "chest" where they hide all their treasures! It is full of Walnut trees they have planted.

    Thanks again, Robbie :)ReplyCancel

  • QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI - I do believe that Miss "B" is it–she is part of Bunny Hill–will be in more Bunny tales to come and she was introduced to us in a basket–all B's and on top of that she has a bushy tail and is always busy doing something–whether it;s gathering food or getting into trouble–it equals being BUSY–the "B" could stand for Busy or it could be her name Miss Busy—
    And I am "busy" with all your delightful designs you have given us this year–Thank you soo much–Hugs, DiReplyCancel

  • gloria g. - Hi Anne. I always try to think of cute names for all our animals. But I think "Ms. Iam A. Squirrel". My brother had a friend named Cobb Webb. Go figure – what were his parents thinking. Anyway, how about Tuttie Fruitti. Just a thought or two. Have fun.

    gloria g.ReplyCancel

One last: Chelly, taken from precious Chelsea's name! Best, AniReplyCancel

  • a little bit biased - After much thinking, I've decided her name should be Charlotte. Charlotte is sweet enough for Bunny Hill, yet a little mischievious too. Charlotte the squirrel…What do you think?ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - She looks like her name should be Sofie. Love your patterns.

  • Carol in E TN - Squiggy was the first thing that popped into my head. The next thing I thought of was Sterling!ReplyCancel

    Thank you so much for this wonderful BOM pattern I can't wait to get it done.ReplyCancel

  • Melamoo - I think "Sasha" is a great choice for such a beautiful squirrel with her floral tail and pink scarf. Fall is my favorite time of year and this block is definitely my favorite. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!ReplyCancel

  • Laura in IA - "Sossy" pronounced saucy.ReplyCancel

  • May Britt - What about Fuzzy Tail. My brother had a tame squirrel at the cabin. And he came upon my lap and ate nuts from my hands. So cute.ReplyCancel

  • fusteina - I Like, Gertrude, "Truddy" for friends.
    Hugs from Dominican Republic.ReplyCancel

  • HollyC - I think the name "Little Miss Nutsy" would fit her. Or maybe "Miss Little Bit". She is so cute.

    or Mr. NibblesReplyCancel

  • Agnes - Well I have thought about it all night and I first thought Penelope would be perfect….but the name that kept coming back to me is "Sadie" I just thought it was a girl and if she had friends it would sound cute to say "Sadie and Friends". So that is it "Sadie" is my choiceReplyCancel

  • Yvonne - How about Acorn the Squirrel?ReplyCancel

  • lyounk09 - Well so much for my speed reading. After reading many comments I see that this is a girl squirrel. So my suggestions would be either Amber or Autumn.

  • jaybird - a girl that is a squirrel… i'm picking emma… cause that is my niece's name… and not nutty… & i think she deserves a normal name.ReplyCancel

  • Penguinsplus - Patches – this is the name I think best suits the squirrel – we all use patches of fabrics to make our projectsReplyCancel

  • Jane Anderson - I think her name is TRIXIE, because she knows every trick in the book to get food and fools her fellow squirrel friends by pretending to bury nuts in one place, but not really putting it in the hole, then scampers off and buries it somepalce else, a documented behavior I read about. That is very tricky, so she is Trixie.ReplyCancel

  • Edie - I had to sleep on this question – since the Puritans brought the tradition of Thanksgiving to America, I thought a Puritan like name would work – how about PATIENCE – since this is almost the opposite of the behaviour displayed by squirrels this time of year! What a fun contest!ReplyCancel

  • Jill - Since little squirrels live out with the flowers and trees I'd call her Lilly- It won't matter what you call her, cause she's a cutieReplyCancel

  • Gail :) - I like the name Chatter for your squirrel. When I was little this adorable squirrel used to greet my sister and I everytime we went outside. He would make the sweetest little sound, so we called him Chatterbox, "Chatter" for short. He always had so much to tell us. We would give him our leftover happy meals for a treat :0 Thanks for reminding me of such a sweet memory. I LOVE the squirrel :)ReplyCancel

  • lisa - my three yearold sweetie mentioned "Poppers" because the squirl just poped out of the basket! and apparently keeps popping up in your quiltsReplyCancel

  • Renee - MimiReplyCancel

  • Robin - I guess Nutsy popped into my head first, but on the other hand since your things look kind of old fashioned- an old fashioned name- Hannah would work also.ReplyCancel

  • sap5 - If it is a she then Sammie Squirrel but for a he then it is Sammy Squirrel.Of course Fuzzy Wuzzy would work for either.

  • Jen in NY - Jen again…I already left the name "Scooter," but I thought of another one too…"Annabelle," after my 8-year old daughter who loves to watch the squirrels in our backyard. A pretty name, both for a little girl and a little squirrel, don't you think??ReplyCancel

  • Lisa - My ideas:
    Skamper the Skwirl

    This squirrel scampers from one block to another.


  • Sharon - I'm going with Nutley or if you prefer…Nutlee, Nutleigh or Nutlea!ReplyCancel

  • PaulaAnita - Ever since I moved to east Texas, and encountered so many of these critters in my front and backyard, I decided to give the squirrel a name. His name is Albert. Now, granted, there may be several "Alberts" that scamper around my yard, but giving them all one name is so much easier to identify them … they all look alike!! So, I'd like to submit the name of Albert for this adorable creature.

    I love your website. I get lost in all the stories, and products.


  • luvtoquilt - While working on this block, I was reminded of growing up in the midwest and the cute squirrels we saw, especially in the fall, getting ready for the cold winter months ahead. My husband and I spent the first year of our marriage in Hartley, Iowa, and I think Hartley would be a great name for your darling squirrel.ReplyCancel

  • di - I think her name should be
    Nutasha – rather than Natasha!ReplyCancel

  • Sue from Sunny Cyprus - Hi Anne

    I just love this block so much. I think a squirrel is so much more universal than a turkey. Besides, we, here in sunny Cyprus eat turkey at Christmas. Anyway lets get back to the name… I thought of Scribbles the Squirrel. Or what about Scratchy the Squirrel.

    Better go and get back to my block…. I have a squirrel to applique!!

    Love Sue from Cyprus. x x xReplyCancel

  • Sharon - I think the squirrel is Squirreley.
    These little rodents are always squirreley! They gather so many nuts in the fall, bury them and then forget where they are. If that's not squirreley, I don't know what is. Perhaps they are just stash building.nLOLReplyCancel

  • marcab77 - that little squirrel has got to be a 'Chloe' — with a long 'e' at the end. yep, that's her name, Chloe! ritaReplyCancel

  • Terry - I kind of like Serafina, or Sera for short! Thanks for the giveaway! :0)ReplyCancel

  • trelly - Hi again, my husband thinks the squirrel has face of Flippy! Do you like it? Remember, my birthday is the 25th jajajajajajajajajaReplyCancel

  • Mirabilys - Well, I would name her "Noisette", it"s the french world for "Hazelnut" or "Noisetine".
    Hugs from FranceReplyCancel

  • Rachel - There are 368 comments ahead of me but I am still going to toss in my 2 cents – I pick Nutmeg for the squirrel's name.

    I love the new basket. I can't believe how excited I get on the 5th of every month, even though sometimes I don't get around to making the block until the 30th!

    Thanks Anne!ReplyCancel

  • nckym - I like the name Pesky as squirrels are sometimes, but for a girly name – I like Mary Rose. Or Furry rose.ReplyCancel

  • Carol - My name for your squirrel is: Sassie. Great gift basket.ReplyCancel

  • cathie - I am going to call her "Nutty Collector" as that is her main job collecting nuts for her self and her family. Love your designs. Cathie from Oz.ReplyCancel

  • cathie - How about "Miss Fluffy Tail" as that is one of their great assets. Especially, coming out of that Basket. Cathie from Oz.ReplyCancel

  • Violet Viola Viooltje - I thought of:

    ♥*♥ PATCH ♥*♥

    You can decide wether Patch is a female or a male.

    Or Marianne?
    Or Susan?
    Or Meggie?
    For female squirels.

    Or James?
    Or Bob?
    Or Michael?
    For male squirels.

    Thank you very much for all your wonderfull designs, and this fun contest.

  • Roseanna - I am such an anglophile…I would name him "Sir Nutsalot"!ReplyCancel

  • Becky - The name that comes to my mind is Nutsy.ReplyCancel

  • Kathy - Anne,
    My mother (who will be 81 tomorrow) has fed squirrels for years. Once a baby squirrel was abandoned by the mother so my mom bottle fed it and kept it in large bird cage until it was big enough to release. We named the squirrel Mrs. Beasley, so I suggest Mrs. Beasely for the little squirrel.ReplyCancel

  • Pam - I think the squirrels name sound be Cotton Tail..I think that would be really cute!!ReplyCancel

  • - Hi Anne- I would call your squirrel, Chipper since that is the name we have given to the little friend who has made our back deck his home this summer. Thanks! gwenReplyCancel

  • Life At Camellia Cottage - hmmmmm, I like Punkin, Peanut, and Rhoda (as in rodent!). I also like Maizey (as in corn, maize, Indians, you know!) and Cheekie, because they fill their cheeks up with food. Great contest! Becky G.ReplyCancel

  • sweetbabies00 - Everytime my daughter sees a squirrel, she calls it "Mr. Nutty" We see him all over town. :) I think your squirrel should be Miss Nutty.
    Your work is beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • Laura - Betsy came to my mind as soon as I saw her! Love your blog and BOM.


  • pennyquilts - The squirrel's name can be Curiousity – she has climbed into a basket!ReplyCancel

  • Janice - I've only ever seen one squirrel and it was too cute. What about "Nutkin" for a name?ReplyCancel

  • Chris - How about Netty, I mean "Nutty".
    Your squirrel-in-a-basket is adorable.ReplyCancel

  • Mimi - I kinda like "Nutsy".ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - How about "FRISKEE" for the squirrel's name. DH says all squirrels are frisky.
    I absolutely think you have wonderful applique patterns! I am now addicted to applique…
    (((hugs))) from CanadaReplyCancel

  • Peaceful Piecer - Dixie FlyerReplyCancel

  • hennies.pennies - I think Amerlina suits her perfectly. You'd think with a name like that she'd be sweet and proper, but her miscievious side shows itself when you least expect it!ReplyCancel

  • hennies.pennies - My goodness…where did my 'B' go!! I meant to write Amberlina!!ReplyCancel

  • Gloria - I just saw a squirrel scamper past my window and I think that's a good name for your squirrel.
    Scamper or Scamper Squirrel.ReplyCancel

  • Grace - Sally the Squirrel is my nomination. It just seems to make her a real member of all of us who love to embroidery and sew!ReplyCancel

  • connie - I have another great name for our squirrel
    Sew- sweet
    that just goes with the wonderful quilt you are "creating"
    connie kapralos

  • Anonymous - I decided to enter a second suggestion…okay here goes….
    "Buttons" LouiseReplyCancel

  • cathie - Here I go again – How about "Fluffy Bottom" or "Fluffy Bum" which ever doesn't offend. Cathie from OzReplyCancel

  • Marilyn - I think that 'Happy Jack' would be a very nice name for your happy little squirrel. That is what Mr. Thornten W. Burgess called his squirrel in his books. Don't you think your squirrel should be just as important? He is sooo cute!!!ReplyCancel

  • Linda - Since she has a nut fettish she could be named Acornia.She loves that you share your BOM patterns with all of us. Thanks from Linda in CA.ReplyCancel

  • mascanlon - Toffee, she is the sweetest color!ReplyCancel

  • Huneybee Quilts - Another name that came to me is Abigail.

    Such fun thinking up names!ReplyCancel

  • Pam Gavin - The squirrel is adorable and reminds me a story I read to my kids when they were small. I think the squirrel's name was Fluffy, because he had a fluffy, fluffy tail. I've really enjoyed the Tisket A Tasket BOM. Can't believe it's almost over. You've done a wonderful job keeping us up to date with these fun designs.ReplyCancel

  • Scottish Nanna - I will call her Sammy.she is so cute or mayby Honey Bunch.
    Hugs Mary.ReplyCancel

  • MARGA'S HAPPY PATCHWORK - Hi Anne, is the first time I walk into your blog, but nevertheless, I know your work from long ago and everyone loves me.
    I am a quilter Spanish, and with this BOM A Tisket A Tasket, I've taken the liberty to translate all the Spanish patterns, I hope this has not bothered you, just did so that more people can realize your projects, since my blog is visited many Hispanic friends talking, they do not understand English.
    From today, here's a new following of your work on this blog.
    Hugs and kisses.ReplyCancel

  • amroth98 - Okay, I have two suggestions:
    Cassandra "Sandy" Squirrel, she can be classy or down-home, depending on her mood; or George Squirrel, this because one day when my boys (Hank & Waylon, 9 & 7) were at work with me they spied a squirrel and named him George and, though they know better, every squirrel they've seen since they call George! Even at home!

  • Ann - I think your squirrel is so debonaire. His name is Pierre.


  • Diane - Ok, here's my second try…actually my husband's idea. What about Pip Squeak….maybe Pip for short? I just had to send this one in :-)ReplyCancel

  • aztel2000 - I think the very proper looking squirrel should be named Miss Nutley. She looks like she is on the way to take tea with her very properly dressed friend (or maybe some nice hot cider).

    Karen in Breezy PointReplyCancel

  • K Cotton - Wonderful give-away!!
    When I look at her, I think of Nicole, the squirrel. It's a French name but easy to remember for everybody.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy - Cashew seems like an apt name.ReplyCancel

  • Kerry - I think it looks like a "Nutsy" to me. A lovely block of the month!ReplyCancel

  • denise - I'm thinking the old standby Rocky is in order. Then you can have your Bullwinkle someday too.ReplyCancel

  • Shontelle - I like Matilda. She looks like a lovely friendly squirrel.ReplyCancel

  • lil - what a cute block, just love squirrels and they always remind me my vacation in the US some years ago

    so my choice for her name is very easy, it's "Lady B Liberty", the B stands for basketReplyCancel

  • Tree Dellinger - Booboo the SquirrelReplyCancel

  • Kristine - I like "Sir Spencer". That is what I call my grandson.ReplyCancel

  • Jane Stamper - How cute! The first name I thought of when I saw her was "Nutmeg" or Nut Meg."ReplyCancel

  • Daisy Julz - After much deliberation i have come up with Sterling (boy) and Shilo (girl). Love the look of the hamper and i am so loving the BOM.ReplyCancel

  • Christine - I think a great name for your squirrel would be "Scramble" because they seem to scramble across our fence often!.. I remember when our son was young he would watch them every morning! Each of the squirrels seem to have personality of their own! Your little squirrel will definitely have its own personality! ha!ha!ReplyCancel

  • Diane - What do you think of Suzette?… I mentioned earlier, I still think she looks French :-)

  • Anonymous - Why not QVIRR? that´s I call one to come and get something from my hand

  • Lynn S - How about Mizz Squirrley?ReplyCancel

  • Tricia - My vote is for Samantha Squirrel. Flows nicely together!ReplyCancel

  • Kathleen - I think you should call her Jumpy. My friend has a squirrel in her yard that she calls Jumpy Squirrel. Now that's what pops into my head everytime I see a squirrel, real or otherwise!! Can't wait to stitch your Nov. basket, it looks great!ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - How about either Pearl or Trudy? It's definitely a girl squirrel!!


  • wendy - How about either Pearl or Trudy? It is definitely a girl squirrel!!

    Have a great day and thank you for offering an amazing array of goodies.

    I love your scottie pattern, too!


  • Laurel - Hello Anne – I just recently found your site and the BOM which I immediately had to start…..the designs are wonderful and I appreciate your sharing your unique ideas with us……

    Have all a nice day!ReplyCancel

  • Bozena - Hello Anne,

    You like the french look this time, so why not "Chouchou"?

    I love your imagination. I'll start "Le jardin" soon – I can't wait!:)

    Thank's a lot for a free BOM: it's very kind and all quilts will be realy gorgeous.

    Hugs from France (and sorry for my english)

  • Gloria J W - Anne….hasn't anyone introduced yet. The cute little lad is…of course.. Mr Robert Suirrel esq. And of course not knowing anything about squirrels [living in the north of Australia] I guessed that you would have know all about the dear lad! He appears in baskets and has a wonderful time, and appeals to all the ladies of course..who wouldn't love him with that cute smile.. and great bushy tail. Rainbow smiles…. GloriaReplyCancel

  • Karen - How about LuLu?ReplyCancel

  • Izzy - I would name her "Bunnykins"
    or "Charlotte Brownie"ReplyCancel

  • gloria g. - Couldn't sleep last night, so was thinking….what about Ms. Fuzzie Tale, or even Fuzzie Hill. Or since they hide acorns, what about Heidi Hill!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Melinda - I collect squirrels and acorns. Just love those little guys.
    Chippy is a name we had for a pet squirrel when I was a little girl.
    Good Luck picking a name.
    Melinda in TexasReplyCancel

  • Deb - I haven't taken time to read through all the names, so hopefully this won't be a repeat, but my entry would be: Squiggy.ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - Well, my name for your squirel would be "Miss Frisky" becuase the weather is changing and there is just enough chill in the air to make her "frisky". But not quite here in Houston yet, it was 81 degrees on yesterday :(! JeronaReplyCancel

  • Fiona - I think she should be Miss Rosie…..

    Hugs – Fiona XXReplyCancel

  • Just a Quiltin' - This is a really cute name for
    your squirrel "Nutkin".


  • lisa - this is name choice #2 forme, andI wasn't going to mention it because my littelest one's name is Hazel,and I call her Hazelnut, but I think that's a good name for a cute friendly squirl.

    or fluffernutterReplyCancel

  • b - I love the squirrel! Maybe Breezy would be a good name. I love watching the squirrels running around, gathering supplies, always busy…ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - So many wonderful suggestions from your fans. I believe "GRACE", is a perfect name for a Thanksgiving Squirrel. "Harmony" is my second choice for this peaceful season.

    Brenda NoraReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - "B-Nut" the squirrel
    Squirrels are busy, bothersome, bushy tailed and business like.ReplyCancel

  • nckym - I like Mary Rose for the squirrel (that's our poodles' name too!) or Rosemary, Sage or Thyme. Such lovely names. How about Sophie, or Gabby as squirrels like to chatter. Love your blogs and patterns!ReplyCancel

  • Mary - Oh my gosh, I would name the Squirrel…..Sammy! Sammy the Squirrel! Love your blog and he is absolutely adorable! Hope I win, Hugs, MaryReplyCancel

  • free indeed - Pandora? Curiousity got the best of her since she's rooting around in that basket!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy - I would call her Cheeky Fluffertail-Just Cheeky if you really get to know her.ReplyCancel

  • superstitches - I didn't read all the comments so I don't know if someone picked this one. But I think Nutmeg would be cute. It's one of our favorite spices.ReplyCancel

  • dkubicki - I like the name Nugget for your squirrel's name. Thank you so much for your Tisket a Tasket BOM. I plan on making mine in wool.ReplyCancel

  • thebusybeehive - How about Stacia, or Stasha… Squirrels stash away nuts, and we stash away fabric, buttons and such things. Okay, it looks like this little squirrel is really interested in the beautiful fabric also. I think that's a nice play on words, whether you use the old-fashioned spelling "Stacia" or the spelling that one of my friend uses, "Stasha". :) Or, "Tasha" for short?

    LauraB in UtahReplyCancel

  • Lizzie - Ok, I can't read through all the names so here's mine, I think she's a 'Myrtle'. Hmmm, yes I like that, Miss Myrtle Squirrel. Or is she Mrs?

  • Laila - Hi. In Norway we call Squirrels " Nøtteliten"(Small Nut)But I don't think it will sound so great in English. So I think why not call him/her Busy. Then you can use it every where? Hugs. ;-)ReplyCancel

  • Ondrea - Cute Squirrel!!!! Definately a Lancelot- Sir preferred.ReplyCancel

  • Scrap for Joy - We have a squirrel who regularly comes up on our deck and if she finds no peanuts waiting for her, looks in the door and then knocks. (No kidding) We named her Edith (for Edith Ann, Lily Tomlin's character) because she likes to eat her peanuts sitting in a deck chair. This squirrel could very easily have been modeled after our Edith…..and I love her scarf!

  • StuckinGeorgia - She looks like a Teeny to me.ReplyCancel

  • Martha - Chester, I think is a cute name for a squirrel. Don't know why, just came to me.ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - There are so many posts, so I don't know if this name has been used yet. I thought the name Lil Scamp might be cute. They all are scamps but cute. DeniseReplyCancel

  • D y a - Oh, I love naming animals. But I've been without a PC for almost 3 weeks, so I missed a lot :-)). There are too many comments now to check all the names that are already 'in the hat', so I hope I don't sent 'doubles', but Ilike Mrs. Knibbles or Munchy.

  • kopeckys - I am so enjoying your BOM. I like the name "Peanut" for the squirrel. Thanks for all your gorgeouos designs. I really like the combination of stitching with quilts.ReplyCancel

  • Blessedmom's Simple Home - Wow, so many wonderful names, how will you ever decide? I'm going to add a couple, Twiggy, Squiggy, Buttercup, or maybe even Cocoa because of this little squirrel's color. Someone else said Bitsy, and I like that one too. I'm sure you'll come up with a great one.

  • Lisa Boyer - Gee…reading all the comments, there are so many great names! All I can think of is "Binky" because I used to know a squirrel named Binky. Whatever her name is, she's adorable!ReplyCancel
