I'd love to see this up close.  It looks really interesting (at least as far as what I can see in this sized photo)!

I love your unusual colors. I believe that your bird needs to be the center of interest--not the center of the quilt, though. Reduce the left hand side some, maybe bottom and right side also by folding bits under until the bird becomes the focal point. Because the colors are so lovely and different, a multiple border using some of the colors might make this piece what you want. One border using the bird's color might bring it into a focal point. I wish I could advise about quilting lines, but I'm not very good at this yet. Quilting lines can draw the eye to the focal point.
