A big thank you to everyone for the great ideas! All of your suggestions have potential and I’ve experimented with some of them below. Not everyone was aware that Ferns + Feathers is already machine quilted… making some suggestions mute, for the moment anyway. Metallic threads could be added – maybe once I’ve completed Quilt U’s class that starts on Saturday dealing with such things as difficult threads… Here is a close-up shot showing the quilting.
