    What Should I Name This Quilt?

    I had these black and white checkerboard and dot fabrics that I wanted to use. I decided to combine it with some bright colors, and this was the result. I have no idea what to name it. Do you have a suggestion?

    It is mostly walking-foot quilted, but I did put some free-motion curls in the colors.

    I wanted to add to the length so I took some of the one-inch leftover checkerboard strips and added 2.5" black strips above and below. I was surprised that it came out looking like a road. I liked this look so much that I made some more with the leftover checkerboard fabric. That turned into 461" of road borders or sashing to use for a future project.

    It measures 71 x 94 inches.

    A husband is the perfect confidant to tell your secrets to - he can't reveal them to anyone else because he wasn't really listening when you told him!

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    I can't add any more name suggestions, but I just had to compliment you on your accurate piecing. Wow!

    The Road to Happiness! The quilt makes me Smile with the bright colors and dots. I like the swirl quilting design you used in the bright colors.
