Confetti Quilt Needs A Name

A group of Fiber Artists gathered recently
to try our hand at this technique - 
Confetti Quilts or Shredded Fabric Quilt.
We cut fabric remnants into tiny bits and began to create.
I admit, I made a similar composition as 
was in the example of flowers on a tree limb.
Once in place, we covered the fabric bits with
tulle, layered batting then quilted it with clear thread.
My borders are different sizes giving an offset orientation.
18 inches wide X 13 inches high.
What would you title this piece?

Fall Leaf Trio

While I enjoy Summer with it's plentiful
fresh fruits and veggies, warm sunshine, outdoor swimming,
picnics etc., Fall has it's own set of delights.
As the weather cools and leaves are beginning to turn
glorious colors of purple, yellow and red, it's soup time,
apples with caramel dip, Festivals, hiking, etc.
"Fall Leaf Trio" is 3 Quilted Art Oak Leaves
hand sewn to an aqua & green painted 4 inch X 12 inch  canvas. 
It's available in my ETSY Shop.

Auditioning Teal Borders - Too Bright?

Image may contain: stripes
I've been pondering how to brighten up this
palate from a workshop recently.
You can see it 
 straight from my workshop with Didi Salvatierra.
So, today when I saw this teal fabric in my stash,
I wondered, what if.....?
I may also add some other pops of color extending into the border.
