'Fern' quilt experiment

Awhile back, I posted a picture of an Art Cloth I was thinking about quilting. Well, my curiosity got the better of me today, and I had to give it a try, just to see if the design would be helped or hurt by quilting. It's a long way from completion, but I'm posting a progress report to put it out there and see if anyone has an opinion to offer. The jury is still out from where I stand. Here is a detail of the stitched area:

One thing I do think is that the stitching has highlighted the ferns, which didn't come out as bright as I wanted.

Here is a shot of the whole piece on the left, and below it is the piece before it was quilted:
