WIP no more! Can you name this flimsy?

WIP no more!  I know that you liked the lime green sashing, but I was stuck on the red. I auditioned possible border fabric.  Too light. Too dark. Too busy. I looked in the backings stash -- success! The border print is black with light blue and red leaves.  (There is red in the border, even if you can't see it in the picture.)

The flimsy is 57 x 68 and used 7 yards.  

Any suggestions for a name?

  1. Tiddlywinks! That's what I would call it. In the late 1950's, my older sister and I would spend many a rainy afternoon playing tiddlywinks on the oriental carpet in the living room. The pattern on the rug made a great goal to shoot for with the plastic discs. When we were done, there were the brightly colored spots of the discs lying all over. They had to be picked up so that they wouldn't get caught in the Electrolux.

  4. I don't know what you might call it Nann, but I wanted to let you know that it's inspirational. Fabulous use of scraps.

  8. Oh yes...I had voted for the green but I do really like the red and the whole quilt. I'm not good at naming quilts but when I first looked at it I thought diamonds on playing cards (don't ask me why) so I'll contribute "Ace of Diamonds" as a name.

    Again, love the quilt! Congrats on your finish.

  9. I can't help with a name, I'm too busy enjoying it. I have spotted that little block in quite a few antique quilts lately, mostly with 2 fabrics in the 4-patches, I think I will start one as one of my ongoing projects. Love it.
