"Home is Where the Quilt Is"

Still untitled piece for "Home Is Where the Quilt Is" auction
The Alliance for American Quilts has an annual auction to raise money in support of the organization. I am a member of the quilt alliance because I strongly support the mission to document, preserve and share our quilt stories. Pictured here is my piece for the 2012 auction. Trouble is, I can't come up with a title. It seems like a title with both words Flowers and Home, would be ideal. So far the best suggestion is "Flowers in the Attic". Anyone else have any ideas?
