Color Fields #4

I have finally started the quilting on Color Fields #4 (5 and 6 are already completed). This piece is so huge (for me) and I think I was putting it off a little because I dislike wrestling large pieces in the machine. But also, I needed to get some other things done before I took the time to work on this. It is going to take a while to complete.
 You can see how big it is laying on the table above with my different thread selections laid out.

 I've just done one section so far. Below you can see a small part of that section.  The stitching is more representational than I would normally chose.  But this is what the piece seemed to need.  Hopefully, as you step back from it, it will become more abstract.
