Rustic Neutrals Stitching

Well, the stitching that binds all the scraps together is now complete on this piece.
The working title for this piece shall be Rustic Neutrals.

I am pleased with the result of the stitching. It creates a lot of really nice - really rustic texture that is pleasing.

At this point, there is just the scrap layer fused to the batting - no backing on this thing yet, so I am going to have to come up with some sort of plan for quilting it. I do not want to detract from either the printing or the edge stitching, so I will have to mull that a bit.

Cynthia, this really has the feeling of an ancient rock with carvings or fossils. It is beautiful.

Beautiful! As I was browsing, a thought occurred to me that the unevenness of the outer edges is really attractive. I'm wondering how it would be to fuse the top to a black background and retain the irregular edges somehow? Not sure how you could do it, but I'll bet you would know how!
