Quilt needs a name

Here is a quilty gift for my MIL on her birthday. The featured fabrics are from a fabric line called Flower Show 2 by Benartex. It was quilted and bound in time for her birthday.

However, it needs a name! Got any ideas???
The finished quilt is 59" x 59". It was free-motion quilted on my Janome sewing machine with both cotton and rayon threads.

Feathers appear in the center and on the borders of this quilt. I love quilting free-form feathers. You can squish and moosh and squeeze them into just about any shape or space you need to fill... and they always look good.

For those that are wondering: I don't pre-mark my feathers. I draw the spine guideline with my favorite marking tool [a Chalk-O-Liner] and go from there. I also mark a line about 3/4" to 1/2" from the edge of the quilt top to remind myself of the binding edge.

Give me a good name for this quilt so I can make and attach a label.
