    Put the second of four round on the fan and my family says I should give it a name. In forty years I have only named one quilt.
    I thought Sunflower.
    My grand children agreed that it should be Sunday Morning.
    My daughter, even though she knows the center color should be black says Black Eyed Susan.

    Do any of these sound okay?

    Sunday morning?

    This reminds me of "dandylion puffs" You know when the dandylions go to seed! Just my impression!

    How about "Iris"? To me, it looks like the iris of the eye.

    Grand kids are so special. I think go with whatever they think it should be named. Makes them feel they had a part in it.

    They said when finished it looked like a throw they would lay under as they watched tv or just lounged around on a do nothing Sunday morning. Thanks for your in put, I've got a lot to think about.

    I like Sunday Morning, too!
    The grandkids will always remember it because they helped with naming it. And who knows, it may have planted a seed and you may have a couple of new quilters in your family! Let us know what you decide!

    In my guild, all quilts get names, but the 'rule' is that the name has to fit what the maker thinks. You are the boss here. None of these names are inappropriate.
