'Gearing up' dresden quilt

I finished it today. I love the way it turned out. The colours - black, white and aqua - are really elegant and give it a cold look. The plan was to use dresden blades to create a new look of a quilt block. I modified the dresden template to serve my purpose and here's the result:

Dzisiaj skonczylam quilt i jestem zachwycona tym, jak wyglada gotowy. Zimne kolory sprawiaja, ze jest bardzo elegancki i nowoczesny:


I was inspired by Amy's New York Beauty mini quilt.

A zainspirowal mnie nimi quilt uszyty przez Amy.


Here's the back with quilting visible. It's not perfect, but will have to do. 
I have absolutely no idea how to name it. Any ideas? Help (again)?

EDIT: It's there. The name - 'Gearing up'. LethargicLass came up with it on Flickr. Thank you!


Z tylu troche lepiej widac pikowanie. 
Nie mam zupelnie pomyslu na nazwe dla quiltu. Macie moze jakies pomysly?

EDIT: Juz mam (dzieki LethargicLass)- 'Gearing up'
