Default Art quilt for donation

Every year our church holds a benefit concert for Amaus Health Clinic. During intermission, there is a raffle. All proceeds from concert and raffle are given to the clinic which serves the economically fragile families of the inner city. This landscape quilt measures 20" X 18" and is based on Karen Eckmeiers technique for creating "accidental" landscapes. I am trying to think of a clever title for the label. Any suggestions?

When I take a day to myself, I call it a "mental health day," so the first thing I thought when I looked at your landscape quilt was "Shoring up my mental health." It's a wonderful piece.

That is a great quilt. Your use of rickrack is very unique. Love it.

Like Watson, I am completely enamored with the breaking wave. Would you share with us how you did the foam? At first glance I thought it might be rickrack I enlarged your pic and it looks to be some sort of crocheted trim that you tacked down where the wave is crashing in on itself. Quite an ingenious use of that. Your use of metallic/holographic thread in the waves is also very effective (can't tell which from the photo). You really put a lot of thought and effort into this. Sorry, no ideas for a name label but I do love your quilt.

I love every thing about your quilt. I love the quilted clouds. I think I would name it "At Peace" because it is so soothing, calm & peaceful.
