I pieced this top about a year ago and it has been hanging on my curtain since then. It fits perfectly on the backing fabric which is flying eagles and will make a nice quilt for a boy, possibly in Colorado, or locally. I never am quite sure where the quilts will end up. My daughter used it as a backdrop for a video she shot for her World History class and I never took it down. It has aged nicely :) Sometimes things need to hang around for a while just for the perfect time. I quilted water ripples in the blue sections and leaves and loops in the animal part.
