Promised Pictures

I meant to get pictures of the items I promised yesterday, but got side tracked. All I have is a teaser of what my Orca Bay is going to look like. I need to come up with a name tho.

Did you know that Mobile, Alabama is the original Mardi Gras in the US? Yes it is!! Many people don't know that little fact, mainly because New Orleans is talked about so much in the Mardi Gras season. My grandfather was one of the founding members of the Mystic Strippers here in Mobile. I have a couple of pictures of my grandfather dressed in his costumes holding me. I must have only been like 2 or 3 at the time. Wonderful pictures.

The reason I am telling you all this is part of the reason I need to come up with a name. The colors I chose to use for this quilt are black, gold, green and purple. My Mardi Gras quilt. Thought about calling it Mobile Bay, but...LOL...that doesn't make sense does it? I also do not want to just call it Mardi Gras. Sooooooooooo, the thinking of a name goes on. Anyone have any suggestions???

Here is the little teaser picture.
