The original thought on enhancing woodgrain was to quilt it in even before the aqua door thread was added... but after some consideration, I decided to do the aqua quilting first and use the quilting furrows to pick and chose which ones I might enhance with light wood colored ink. So consideration began.... The end result seems to me both effective and efficient ( I'm all for that) . It's not important that we do terribly realistic wood graining in this process. The wood door is not the focal point so the suggestion of graining is just fine.
