Name This Quilt.

I'm going to make a quilt out of these 20 or so FQs. They were NOT picked for their beauty.
What would you call a quilt made from this selection?
And you don't have to be nice either.
I have told Ruth Allsop what I have in mind, let's see if any of you come close.

 Well, here's the first pairing. Am using HST paper sheets I bought a loooooong time ago from The Quilter's Barn in Vic (I think) I get a set of 3s and a set of 1.5s from a pair of FQs. Haven't pulled the papers off yet. And have discovered I don't like pressing 1.5" HST open.
You can see the other FQs paired up on the left of the photo. They were picked up as they came off the line up on the table, no shuffling, they stay as they are wether they play nice together or not.




PS: I ended up giving this project away as a UFO. It just didn't want to play nicely with me. I'm sure Heather H will tame it.
