Here's the thread sample that resulted from my Take It Further Challenge http://sharonb.wordpress.com/ The diagonal from upper right to lower left showa the pure colors. The left side is what happens when the first layer of thread down with circles is covered by straight stitching in the other colors. The right shows it with circular stitching for the second layer.
Here is the reverse side. Not much different. I used the same color on top and in the bobbin and learned that even if you use the heaviest water soluble stabilizer, it distorts. If it needs to be square, a hoop would be necessary.

I wouldn't have thought the type of stitch would have affected the outcome so much. Cool experiment.
