Another Fingerprint panel mini quilt, colour theory, and hand quilting

Like yesterday's mini quilt, this piece uses a Fingerprint fabric for a centre panel. This fabric is the Peabody Bird.
The colour scheme is a sophisticated one, a triad of three colours equally spaced on the colour wheel: red-violet, yellow-orange, and blue-green in different values.
The turquoise 4 inch flying geese were designed so the points float on the background. Love how this turned out!
Hand quilted in #8 perle cotton.
