Triple Beet Panels on Stretcher Bars

Yesterday, I showed how I glued my quilt to a prestretched canvas. Here is the result.
You can see how I finished the edge of the quilt with a specialty yarn (hand dyed by me) zig-zagged to the quilted edge. And also how I stitched over the pebbles with a variegated pearl cotton (in the very colors I used in the quilt)
And here is the piece in it's final form:
And a final detail.
I don't usually have difficulty coming up with a title for my work. It usually comes to me in the final stages. This time - it didn't happen for me. I would welcome suggestions. Thanks!

This is LOVELY! The fabrics are fantastic - so much texture. ANd those rocks? Genius!

As far as a name - I think something with "root" in it: Rooted in Stone, Rocky Roots, hmmm...

I've been watching the progress of this piece and I love the way it turned out. I'm not good at titles, but how about "the good earth"

All I can think of are some kinda bad puns: And the Beet g\Goes On or Can You Beet This? Sorry!!!

Cynthia, I am in love with this and I only like pickled beets! LOL! I just love the beets, the greens, rocks, roots, everything! It is wonderful. Thanks for sharing your process. I have enjoyed it so much. Wishing you a sunny weekend.

I love it! You chose just the right method to hang it! How about 'Cross section of the beet crop'? or 'Beets growing in rocky soil'... whatever you call it, it's a wonderful piece!

Well Cynthia, all I can think of is "Beet It!" (but that sounds like Michael Jackson)... how about... "Just Can't Beet It?"
It's wonderful and unique.
