Linen throw quilt

I am continuing with my pieced hexagon adventure. These are larger hexagons, 2 1/2" I think. I appliqued them to a large piece of mid-weight pale green linen. It is fairly heavy, but I still think that I will back it with handkerchief weight linen, and so make a linen throw quilt. Now what to call it? - something thing Wind Blown Blossoms, or Windy Garden, or Falling Petals - hmmm, I don't want a cutesy name. Will have to think on this . . .
On the design board, appliqué finished. Waiting to be sandwiched and quilted.
