    It's your quilt. You can call it anything you want in your own home. I agree with Tartan.

    Is it a personal quilt, to keep or be given to an individual ... or is it a quilt for sale? If for sale I would use something like tribute to ... if it's a personal quilt you can call it anything you want as you are not profiting from someone's name.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Not profiting from someone's name. I just saw this person wearing a tie and thought wow great quilt easy and quick.
