This one caused me just a bit of grief, I tried several different stitches and colors of thread, tearing most of them out. The color was either overwhelming or the stitching came across as out of proportion for the piece. After finally finishing the embroidery I was very perplexed...what color should the background quilty mat be to not overwhelm or fight with it. "We" decided on our parchment and Kristin suggested I quilt it with trees as I had done several years ago on another quilt. I think it sets of the "stacked landscape" portion well.
Thanks for stopping by.
