    I finished this little quilt top this week. It was originally named "Tic-Tac-Toss" until someone said it reminded her of fruit. Probably the orange and green looks like honeydew and cantaloupe. So I changed the name. I like the new name much better.

    Very pretty! And you named it perfectly. It reminds me of a bowl of cool melon on a hot summer day!

    At first I wasn't sure if the title was a metaphor... :wink:

    I also love bright orange in a quilt. I like the mitred corners too; they add a little something extra.

    Very pretty!
