It’s a Hoot quilt top

Well I finally got the It’s a Hoot quilt top finished. I used strips from the jellyroll for the sashing. What do you think?

Because I had to take four pieces off the bottom of each panel I had a spare piece that had a whole bird on it. I appliquéd the bird across two strips and I think it looks like it’s flying out of that tree. Here’s a close up.

Now to choose a backing. It’s hard because I’m trying to only use my stash and as I’ve only been collecting for 2 years I don’t have a huge one to fossick through. I’ll get back to you on the backing.
