Not sure about this
My thinking is for me to do this challenge I must be true to the quilter I am.
I have always thought of the quilting as the part of the process which gives texture to a piece by giving it light and shadow. This feeling of dimension is what shadows give us, a sense of depth. They, and the light give is the ability to see depth even with one eye closed.
This piece looks better in the photo than it actually is. It needs another try on another day. I want the colour to emphasize the depth of the piece more than just plain stitching would i.e. the shadows in the valleys of the stitch to appear darker than pure shadow would give them.....
