St. Paddy's Day quilt process..or why can't I do things the easy way...

My St. Paddy's Day quilt could have used a lovely, soft, one fabric back to steady it and calm it, but...Oh, no...not me...instead I have pieced with scraps a much more complicated backing.
You know those antique quilts with lettering right up front? Like "Annabelle  1843".. I saw one in the red and white exhibit pictures from NYC.  Well, I decided that my backing for this quilt would be just like that...However, nothing calming about it.  More like a jungle me thinks.  Anyway, it has taken me forever to just get this far...keep tuned in.
