    Finished UFO and need a name suggestion

    I normally don't name my quilts. I just don't have that kind of imagination. So I finished this, with vintage blocks from ebay, reproduction 1930's fabric from today and a more contemporary quilting design. I was thinking something like Past meets present or yesterday and today. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am going to get the label made then I need to decide if I am going to keep it or put it up for sale.

    'Yesterday's treasures". The fabrics and patterns remind me of all the older quilt patterns I have seen. The quilt is beautiful. Good job, it would be hard for me to not keep. I love it.

    Okay they already took 2 of what I was thinking so now I really have to think......How about.....lets see it reminds me of grannie squares....you want the name to have past and present....hummm....."Grandmas tales of the times". You see your quilt has a story to tell and thats what grannies do tell stories, from "Yesteryear meets modern", your quilt has it own story and its speaking loud and clear. Beautifully done!

    I would call it "At Last" and put a music staff with it. It is a "medly" of colors.

    Love them all. I like the juxposition of old and new. But now that I see it in a photo I can really tell the vintage fabric (all the blocks) from the new fabric (the border) the colors are different. I really tried to get them as close as possible. Did pretty good matching the yellow though.
    The quilt doesn't really fit my bed. I am one of those that needs to have something to DO with it to keep it. LOL I really need to Stop that.

    I think I might call it the "Generations" quilt - think of all the generations of creativity that went into it, and, hopefully, several more generations will love and treasure it!
