Name This Fabric Contest!

I just finished this little quilt that features my original hand made fabric. I have used upcycled fabric and threads to create this fun, textured fabric. I quilted over all the little pieces to make it stable and keep it from shedding. My studio is covered with a million brightly colored fuzzies that escaped the quilting needle.

After the quilt was pieced, I added the floral elements in cottons and felted wool. All are needle turn appliqued. Doesn't it look like an impressionist painting? I've titled it: "Field of Wildflowers"

But.....I have a problem.......this fabric needs a name! Can you help?

I have been playing around and can't find the right one. So...I'm having a contest. Name This Fabric.
For the next 10 days I'm open to any and all suggestions. Just leave your idea and email address in the comment box here and on October 15th I will announce the winner. As a thank you for helping me, I will award the winner a 6x9 inch bag, featuring the fabric.... with it's new name!

I thank you all, in advance, for your entries. Please keep it clean. I look forward to reading all of your creative ideas.
