Name that Bird Class Contest

Here's a contest you are sure to want to enter so you can win valuable prizes. What should I call my new class where we make birds doing bird like things in a colorful way?  If you can name that #*!@ class, I'll send you a set of 4 bird patterns! There are 2 rules. The class can not be named "Bird is the Word" or "Fusing Fowl". And the birds in the title can not be doing anything disgusting. Following is the class description.
Like a bird in flight, this class will lift your spirits and make you sing! You'll create fun little birds dancing, nesting, and wading knee deep in personality. Our colorful fowl (indigenous only to the campus of the Chicago School of Fusing) are created with fused fabrics and hand embroidery. Your kit includes all the hand dyed fabrics and threads you'll need for your little bird quilt top.

Walter Benjamin said "Boredom is the dream bird that hatches the egg of experience." I think that applies to quilters and also applies to birds created in each persons imagination! So, I suggest "Dream Bird"!

Christine Thresh said...

"Fowl Play" would be a good title.

sophie said...

Birds appear in so many idiomatic expressions (and most would be suitable for your class name). How about For the Birds (as in something not to be taken seriously) or A Little Bird Told Me ...?

Lisa said...

How about "Fine Feathered Fusing"

Since you already have Morning in Birdland, how about Birdland Boogie-(Various Titles) such as Birdland Boogie-Jaybird Jive, Birdland Boogie-Tweet Music, Birdland Boogie-Charleston Chirp, Birdland Boogie-I Got the Blues, J!, Birdland Boogie-Heron Hip-Hop, Birdland Boogie-Rockin' Robin. The birds wouldn't have to actually look like the real birds, but it's a theme that would easily allow for individual variations and a whole line of patterns.
