Some that saw this said it looked like Aluminium Foil, so that is as good a name as any. 

I was inspired to create this from things shared from: Film In The Fridge!  Love her work.

But the real inspiration was this was my first 'pieced on paper" quilt since my first one - at age 8.  I made that one with my grandmother.  It was 20 years before I made my second quilt.  I don't think she would like this quilt design very much, but she was very much with me in spirit as I made it.  I do think she would like that I did what I wanted to, based on her instruction.  So many memories came back to that summer in about 1972...

I learned much about shading, shadows, and strip size.  I really hate how my idea to use different sized strings made a mess of some of my points.  And my goodness, did I learn I need to do better at setting that first seam on the strip. 

It was very much fun cutting up my phone book for the backing paper - I found I could cut an 8 inch width, so I made 8 inch squares from my old phone book.

Your quilt is nicely done. This is the Strip Tube Ruler block pattern, "Daniela Block" named by the designed of this ruler and owner of Cozy Quilt Shop, here in El Cajon, CA (San Diego County.)  Love the "on point" setting and the green sashing.
