Dragon Bones and Fish Fingers

I developed this technique after cutting through some blocks by accident! Have you ever had that happen? I didn't clear my cutting table properly and the blocks were tucked under some other fabric....big oooppps! So remember the adage about making "lemonade"?  I joined the blocks back together with a contrast strip and thought the style worked quite well.
So I'm teaching Dragon Bones at the Creativ Festival in Toronto, in Saskatoon next month and at Quilt Canada in Halifax, NS. I've made  lots of samples, because there are SO many different designs you can do with this technique and I've got ideas for many, many more quilts!
Now I need some help naming the quilt, put your thinking caps on and help me with this. My husband will pick the one he likes best. Leave the name in the Comments section or on my Facebook.

Now if you are wondering how to make the blocks there's a couple of cool projects in my Accent on Angles book available here.

How about "shot by an arrow" or "arrow shots". ok, that's a stretch but they remind me of arrows being shot!

"slings and arrows" is my vote. A gorgeous quilt by whatever name you go with!

Dragon Fire is my shot at it... and thank you for the magazine, Quilter's Connection, I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

I love the "Dragon Bones and Fish Fingers" you used as title for this post... makes for a very cool name for this quilt!

I'd suggest bright direction.
Thanks for sharing, Susan.
