Please help name me

I can't believe I've actually finished something. I picked up this unfinished project last week and am surprised I actually got it done. (and yes I did end up mitering the border)

As I mentioned in my earlier post about this work I started it in a Quilt University class called Darned Quilts with Dena Crain. In order to make the circles (which Dena calls Bubbles) I cut out the shapes and then used same sized circles cut from elsewhere in the quilt to plug the holes. The circles/bubbles are sewn in using the darning stitch on the sewing machine.

I first considered naming this "Those Darned Bubbles" but now am not sure I really like that name. Now I'm considering "Bubblicious" or "Tiny Bubbles" or "A Bit of the Bubbly" What do you think? I open to any and all suggestions!

Looks great, Corky! The corners turned out well.

I had several name ideas when my computer decided it was time for me to go to bed.
A Turbulent Orange Ocean
Surf at Sunset
Sunset Surf
Or maybe planets?
Planets in Orange
Distant Planets

Those I forgot were better!

Corky - like Judy I see something cosmic - a hot/wild alternate universe.

I think you should keep bubbles in the title someway. When I look at the quilt it seems the bubbles are floating up to the top of the quilt. Like bubbles in a drink. So, I like "A Little bit of Bubbly" I added the little because it is a fairly small piece. Congrats of getting a UFO finished. Before you know it, you will have your PhD. Sheila

You've done a wonderful job on this piece, Corky - it's so nice to see it very nearly finished, and I do agree the mitered corners make a world of difference! How about sending in a photo for the Finishing School at Quilt U?

Well done!
