A Stab at Organic

I started in on machine quilting some organic wavy lines on this Little Leaves quilt this afternoon, then had my usual stroke.  Did I just ruin this quilt??  Should I have used another color of thread? What was I thinking trying a new quilting design on a quilt top I actually like??  

I had to walk away and go work on binding another quilt so I could settle down and think clearly.  :)

After a fresh perspective, and after laying the binding next to it, the gray stitching didn't seem so out of place.  (I selected a light gray thread thinking it would blend better with the leaves vs white.)

And, I decided that maybe the stitching lines were organic and not incompetent looking, as there is a very fine line between the two!!

So, I decided to press on!

All finished!

I definitely some more practice on stitching this design to get the flow of the organic lines consistent, but I'm glad I took a stab at it.

Love the texture on the back!
