How I celebrated National Quilting Day.............

I'm working on a special customer's quilt and completed most of the piecing this weekend. Still need to piece a border, I'm thinking prairie points or flying geese, possibly. The quilt is for a young gal who loves teals, peaches, oranges, yellows, ok, just about everything. She also wanted stars so I chose the Ohio Star block. She just painted her bedroom a beautiful shade of turquoise. I love it! And she loves what she calls "Island" decor. I love that, too. Soooooooooooo, she was amazed to find I already owned just about all the fabrics she was dreaming of and more in my stash already. We've been havin a chucled over the fact that two women at such differing ages might have the same taste in decor. Oh my, wonder what that sez about me!

Anyway, I thought you might like to see a few pictures of the blocks, they were such a blast to do. Now, I have to decide on a name for this quilt. Can I get some suggestions from anyone? Something funny and clever maybe?????????
