Colin's Leaves

This is the first challenge I've actually completed and posted since joining the FFFC group. Took almost a year!
My inspiration was a photo that a friend of mine, Colin, took of three leaves on the hood of his car. When I saw the pic on Facebook, I asked if I could use the photo as inspiration for this challenge calling for high contrast. He agreed, and waited several months for me to actually make it!
This is the first art quilt I've done in a long time, and I like it.
It was made with raw silk and silk crepe, quilted with metallic silver and black thread and marked with silver paint pen.
Critiques welcome!

your colors are beautiful and I really like the shadows created by the leaves. Simple and lovely!
