springtime in the rockies

I am working on a quilt that I am already thinking of as Springtime in the Rockies. Naming a quilt before it is finished is sort of like an expectant parent settling on a name and hoping the baby fits it.
The quilt centre is in a fused but unstitched state but that will soon be remedied with free motion locomotion.
It will be surrounded by twelve wild animals; an even number of carnivores and herbivores.
Two more borders, one pieced and one appliqued will follow I think. Quilts often have a mind of their own about these things, but this is what I am seeing right now.
I am feeling very overprotective of my emerging quilt. It seems somehow top secret, not unlike NASA blueprints.
