Quilting “I See the Moon”

I am making good progress on quilting “I See the Moon.” I have quilted around all the branches (whew!), done some of the darkest part of the sky at the top, and have finished the moon.

I used two colors of thread on it, a medium blue on the darker areas, and white. At first, I worried that I had made it too textural and bumpy. But I think it looks okay, especially since the rest of the quilt is fairly flat. And since it is the focal point of this piece, I guess it doesn’t hurt to let the quilting draw some attention to it.
