This piece screams for more texture to me...I would add some foiling and beading or how about adding an image of a dove as a quilt motif????

I really like the colors, and the "allover" quality of the piece, but it seems to me that it needs a focal point - how about a single larger fern leaf in a brighter or darker red or orange? (Something with some contrast). Or maybe an arrangement - make the "wallpaperness" work as a background.

This basically needs color help. Some complementary colors used as embellishment, maybe? Maybe even some blue or black frames placed around the piece with the fabric showing through - to break up the monotone of the piece - which is beautiful, but it needs to be set off somehow.
