    Need help naming this quilt

    So my DD has never been too excited about quilts, and never asked for one, although I have made some for her kids, who do like them. Anyway, when we correspond by email, I always throw in an emoticon--a big one--which matches her mood, or my mood, or something like that. Well, she suddenly decided that she wants a quilt of emoticons, with all the ones that I have sent to her. What I did was then choose a whole lot of them and told her to choose the 12 that she liked the best. It turns out, that the ones she chose were ones that reflect her various moods. So here's what I came up with. I digitized and embroidered all the faces on the yellow fabric, and then appliqued them onto the black--in some cases, I also embroidered on the black. I haven't quilted it yet, so you can see the red fleece that I'm backing it with around the edges.
    OK, so I need a name for this quilt. I have a couple of ideas, but nothing I'm really happy with yet:
    -Rachel's faces
    -Ask me how I feel!
    -I wonder what today will be like.

    I always get help and creative thoughts from the Quilting Board!

    Brilliant!!

    (not for a name, but for the result of your effort)


    eta:
    You know, I'll bet that would make a very desirable pattern.
    Just saying.


    yeah, there might be copyright/trademark issues.
    Maybe.

    Heck, I'd buy just the digitized files from you (and I don't even have an embroidery machine but I can always find one to borrow for a few hours).

    This is so cute! Just shows that a "quilt" doesn't have to look old fashioned for today's generation. You did a great job. I bet she will be very pleased with it.

    What about "You and Me" as it reflected yours and her emotions?

    ITA ... Brilliant!
    The two of you put your ideas together and have one brilliant quilt!

    Being that it started with emoticons you tossed into your emails, what about
    .... Only Mom Knows!

    I love it, too. You did a great job designing and piecing it. No name ideas that haven't already been given.

    what a fantastic quilt..... Are the emoticons appliqué with embroidered faces?

    As for a name ..... how about....."I second that emotion".

    hugs

    I embroidered the faces, and hands, etc., and then cut out the yellow face (double layer of yellow) and appliqued it onto the black background with satin stitch. Am I answering your question?
