Aboriginal ???

The Aboriginal Quilt, 70 x 84 inches.
Quilted by Maggi Honeyman.
Looks like this one was about two years in the making. Started with a block made for fun and now has ended with the last binding stitches. You can read about the process here.
Love that fabric in the left corner. I think it's a Thimbleberries.
Also used toile, repros, text and part of a Halloween line!

The back. Not terribly exciting, but the fabric complements the front
(despite my photography skills) and was on sale.
I'm not sure what to call it. In my head it's The Aboriginal Quilt because I tried to use Aboriginal fabric in every block, but that name doesn't match the look. Suggestions welcome.

I'm lame at coming up with names for quilts, so all I can say is that I love it!

Stunning! You did a great job!
Sorry, I'm not good with name either.

It's lovely! Esp like the zingy lime coloured highlights.
Perhaps not terribly P.C. calling it "The Aboriginal Quilt" ;o). How about "Churn Dash Dreaming" ?

I like the setting for the churn dash blocks. Looks like diamonds but easier to sew.
