    Naming my new UQ?

    I am making a new 3/4 underquilt out of M50. It is looking beautiful so far. I havent finished it yet but I have been trying to figure out a good name for it and keep cumming up with blanks. It is brown on the ground side and green on the body side. I would love some ideas if you have any.

    Call it the "Reising" after the M50 machine gun of the same name. Here's a link to the story. You'll be "reising" each morning after a good night's sleep.

    "eadrom" means light in Irish... since it is M50 light weight would be implied...

    eadrom teasa would mean "light heat" according to google translate...

    Thanks. Im liking them so far getting the hamster wheel turning abit faster now. I live in Trukey and am thinking about something that will have that feel. The best I have come up with is "The Sultan". I am hoping to get it down into the mid to low 20s. Please keep the names coming.

    Well, you could try using the Turkish word for hot.

    Forgive me if its a bad translation, it came from Google: Sıcak
