    Help name this pattern please

    Hi,
    I'm looking for help to name this quilt pattern. I'm moderately good at designing them but really bad at giving them names. If I ever make it I'll probably donate it to Quilts of Valor. Any ideas?

    Very cool design. I gotta hand it to you folks who create patterns. What a gift.

    First thing I thought of was Radiant Beams.

    I'd call it Duck, Duck, Goose. The center square make me think of a wide open beak honking, in the white feathers, in the blue pond. A big part of the pattern is flying geese. And the blocks are set one way, the other way, one way, the other way, which made me think of the game, and children tapping heads around the circle, each 'duck' waiting for, "Goose!!".

    lol But, I like fried eggs too! lol

    Oooh! I like Sunnyside Up!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Great pattern. Not good at naming either but you seem to have some good suggestions here.

    I saw angular fried eggs too, LOL! I think the colors are the reason. No name comes to mind. I would just name it something artsy and unrelated, like a geographical location or someone's name.

    Eggs popped into my mind, too. Title ' Which came First ~ the Goose or the Golden Egg?' or something along those lines.

    If the yellow was not so bright, egg/yolk colored, the impression or effect would be different.

    Very interesting pattern! Bravo!

    How about doing it up in a different color scheme or arrangement?

    Sometimes a design impression changes when the colors are different.

    That is one of the neatest HST patterns I have ever seen. Great job! I'm drawing blanks too on names, though.
