In this time that I've been pulling old samples out and seeing if I can do something with them, I found this and decided to hand stitch along the edges of the paint using Chain Stitch.
All the things I considered for finishing the piece were too complicated and detracted from it, so I went with a simple black border. To stop the lines from taking the eye off the center, I hand stitched a small border using Back Stitch.
The hand stitching is done in a cotton thread that I dyed. The quilting is straight line in black thread.
