This is the current project I'm working on.  I just have to sew the blocks together and the top is done.  I'm not going to put a border on this one as I think it looks pretty cool the way it is.  Just wish I could think of a name.  Any thoughts?

As some background, I saw a quilt similar to this in Paducah and came home and played on my EQ until I came up with something similar.  This has a lot of potential for a number of different colors as well.  I used my Go to make all the strips, which saved a ton of time, but had to use two complete squares to make the half triangle ones as I couldn't quite figure out how to do them any other way and still get the look I wanted.  Finished this one will be 66 x 66, so a nice sized wall hanging or lap quilt.

How about Forest Glen?  The shifting greens and browns remind me of walking through a forest.

I love this!  I love the colors and the pattern.

Well, it reminds me of those diamond-shaped chimes that have a diamond shape on the outside and a smaller one in the middle, each spinning in a different direction.  It is hard for me to describe what I'm thinking of.

But -- "Diamond Dreams," "Cosmic Diamonds," "Inner Worlds," all come to mind as possible names.  I think "inner worlds" because it seems like if you look at this long enough, you see more than is actually there . . . it's really neat!

Not good with quilt names so i will spare you that!  I do love your quilt though.

Thank you so much.  I've had two suggestions that I'm leaning towards.  Winter Woods - with the green representing the evergreens and the browns the leafless trees.  The other suggestion is Reflections, which I like a lot as well.

No suggestion on a name, but it is a beautiful quilt. I'd like to try one that would be similar to it.

and the winner is....

I posted and asked the same question on another site as well and the two main recommendations I received had to do with the woods/forest or reflections.  So, I've decided to combine the two and name the quilt "Reflections of Winter Woods".  Winter Woods because the green represents the evergreen trees, and the brown represents the leafless deciduous trees, in winter.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions.  

Mary, it's not hard at all, if you'd like some help, send me a note and I'll be happy to share with you what I did.

This quilt is beautiful!  Very eye catching!  I'm making a quilt for my sister for her wedding in August and have been looking for some inspiration.  Her colors for her wedding are Black, White, and Grey as her fiance is color blind and she wants him to be able to see the wedding exactly as everyone else does.  I think this would be stunning in black and white.  Do you think it would work?  Any suggestions on how to accomplish that?  I have an Accuquilt, what size strip did you use?  I'd appreciate any insight!  Again, I LOVE this quilt!
