I took a little time between current work to start on this quilt. I'm doing some free motion embroidery in the background before doing the actual quilting.
Before I complete more of the embroidery I need opinions. Is this too much color in the background?
What I mean is.... the quilt has lots of color already. I've used a bright color variegated thread for these.
I added just a bit of color around some parts of the applique too.
Before I do more of the embroidery I would like to know if others think it's too much color for the type of quilt? If it's too much color I can pick it out and do something else. I don't want to overwhelm the original design with lots of background color. What I'm hoping is the color thread will be just subtle enough from a distance that people will ask "what is that?" and want to get closer to see it.
I thought about emailing the original designer of this quilt to ask her opinion but I can't remember who it is. I thought I had book marked her site and can't find that either. It's one of "those" kinds of days.
