    HELP PLEASE! 3 Days to Name my Quilt Pattern

    The hard work is done. I put together a pattern we are going to sell at our local quilt show in March here in Milwaukee. I have been writing and proofing this thing for so long You can make 16 different settings with just one block based on how you turn it and those around it, but the attached image is going on the cover. I CAN'T COME UP WITH A NAME. I AM SICK OF LOOKING AT IT

    Any thoughts? The blue reminds me of the sea and I think of some kind of winding path too.
    So far:
    Sea & Shadows
    Brookfield Traveler (city our guild is in)
    Three Decades (last yr was our 30th for guild)
    Wandering Quilter
    Friendship Squares
    West Suburban Wonder
    Quilters' Highway
    Quilters' Path
    Snowboud (in memory of this winter) - 2ft on the ground now
    West Suburban Patch
    Quilters' Puzzle (I am leaning toward this)

    Help...brain dead. Any and ALL ideas so very welcome!!!

    It made me think of "Never take the straight path in life" so maybe that would be good too?

    It's beautiful and unique!

    Since the block can be rearranged to take on many different looks, how about something like:
    Musical Chairs
    Pick Your Path
    Many Paths
    But I like your ideas:
    • Brookfield Traveler (city our guild is in)

      Three Decades (last yr was our 30th for guild)

    what about "The Chosen Path " since they can choose the layout depending how the blocks are turned ?
    If you ever see a quilt without any flaws, rest assured that I did not make it ! http://slightlyoffquilter.com

    That is a beautiful quilt. Others have suggested some good names! Good luck - it should sell well!

    My first thought was Down a Crooked Road or Down a Crooked Path.

    My thought is since there is a 'Quilter's Puzzle' quilt pattern already available in print, why not honor your area and call it 'The Brookfield Traveler'. With that name you may get more sales not only because it is a great looking quilt, but also the quilters locally would have a pattern named after something familiar to them.

    Interesting suggestions. I like the one with the name of the area.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Yes, the blue is the path but the yellow stands out to me. How about The path to sunshine? The road to sunshine? Walking in sunshine?
    Something like that.

    How about "Life's Pathway" None of us have lived our lives on a smooth straight path. At least not mine !!

    I like this name. I was also thinking about something with the word "puzzle" in it, for the same reason: the changing layout.
