Finishing quilting wings

The white sashing on this old quilt is looking sad so I started adding very light fabric triangles and rectangles. Really like the effect. The more soft colored fabrics, the better. Gives it a patchy look, yet doesn't interfere with the wing design. May or may not add stitching...haven't decided. Or maybe later. Need to move on to the next part.
Really liked doing the blanket stitch in a circle around a hole . Fairly fast and the effect is interesting, intricate.
Lots of time spent on the stitching, every night after dinner.
Seeing squid or sea anemones too. This could become a series of interlocked wing shapes. They keep suggesting themselves.
