Design Wall Monday - More Borders

I'm not ready for it to be Monday. The weekend was so nice, it's hard to gear back up for the chaos of the work week.  We didn't do much, which was pretty much what we had all decided the weekend should be before it got here. 

It certainly seems like not much got done even though I was in the sewing room most of Sunday.  However, most of that time was spent at the cutting table not the sewing machine.  That will pay off this week, but for now there's not much to show off.  The third border for Scrappy Stars has been completed. 

Folk Art Christmas Stars
by Robyn Pandolph

The first side of the fourth border is cut and pinned to the quilt.  I should at least get both vertical sides of that border on tonight.  

I've been calling this quilt Scrappy Stars for years, but that's not the name I want to put on the label. This quilt is intended for my mom, so I'd like to name it something a bit more elegant.  Any suggestions?  

That's it for me this week.  Check out all the other design walls over at Patchwork Times.

Way to go Kate - its almost a flimsy! I really like this quilt a lot and Im sure your Mom will love it .

The best I can come up with is Fall Stars for a name - Im useless at naming my own quilts too.

If it's autumn colours.... Rustic stars
If it's more red.............. Regal stars
It is lovely

I'm not good with quilt names either, but I really like that one. I thought it was a Christmas quilt when I first saw it. Is it a Lemoyne?

I have started opening novels up to any page and peruse the language. I've found several that sound intriguing although not always for the quilt in need of a name. Gadfry, I can't come up with anything! Sorry.
