    This Quilt block needs a new name!

    This quilt block needs a new name. I've been calling it Birds in the Air but I'm not sure that is the best name for it. So any help you can come up with would be soooo appreciated!!

    I will be posting the tutorial when I have it all done.

    Let's take care of the Earth, it is the only planet that for sure has Chocolate.

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    When I first saw it I thought, "Birds in Flight" Very interesting block.
    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    It reminds me of a super hero logo of sorts. So I think Bat Cave.

    Tuxedo Stars ? It's interesting how the shape reminds each of us of something different. I think there is already a block called Birds in the Air so good to have a unique name for yours.

    At first look I thought Stealth Bombers. No good for a block name.
    NOSEGAYS I think would be very appropriate.

    Very interesting suggestions everyone! I also thought of Bats last night LOL I like Nosegays and Echo and Exploding stars. I appreciate all the ideas for food for thought. I can see possibilities in each suggestion.

    I'll give it a couple of days and then try to decide. Thank you so much to everyone who offers an idea. I am not good at coming up with ideas and this helps me so much.

    I've so appreciated all the help with the past few quilt blocks. I've been able to come up with some great names that fit the blocks with all the help you all have offered.

    Scrambling Aircraft

    In military aviation, scrambling is the act of quickly getting military aircraft airborne to react to an immediate threat, usually to intercept hostile aircraft.

    I really like the name "Exploding Stars". That's exactly what it looks like the action that is going on. Really great looking block!

    We have bat houses on our property. They eat thousands of mosquitoes an hour. We never see the bats and don't have to use spray to get rid of mosquitoes. It' hard to get bats to find a bat house so we feel lucky.
    I love my life!

    I do like this one alot too. THo it makes me feel like the "stars" should be black LOL It is appropriate also because we used to watch alot of Ninja movies when my kids were growing up.
