I finished this a couple days ago and have posted it in my Etsy shop ( I had started it as part of a group challenge with my local art quilt group to interpret the four elements (earth, wind, fire and water). I didn't like it much until I put another layer of batting on and quilted it some more. I then discharged on higher spots of the quilt and painted over with some Lumiere paints. Adding lots of surface stitchery also made a big difference.
I remember a teacher once saying "if in doubt, do more" and have found that to be generally quite true. I tend to hesitate when the quilt asks me to be brave and adventurous!
