"Flower Power?" (aka "The Westminster Project) Quilt


The quilting is complete and the binding is finally stitched down. Now all it needs is a label. And so begins the process of selecting a name. "The Westminster Project", as it had been dubbed while in progress, will simply not do. The name is too sterile, too empty, too nondescript.

Oliver, my clever husband, says the quilt looks like a 1960s throwback with its funky bold colors and large floral print. Of course I was but a small child in the '60s, so who am I to judge whether "Flower Power" is a name appropriate for this quilt that features a Kaffe Fassett floral print in the outer border, and other more subdued Kaffe Fassett prints, along with other fabrics manufactured by the Westminster Fabric Company, in the blocks and inner borders. So what do you think? Is "Flower Power" it? If you have any other clever name ideas, please, please weigh in!

Love the quilt and it does look like something from the 60's & 70's. Take care and have a safe weekend.

Love the quilt, but Flower Power has been used more than once. Sorry my brain can't come up with anything better though. I just hate having to name quilts if I had my way they would each just be numbered.....
