The quilting above showed the same design with differing results but were extremely effective. This is something definitely to explore.
quilting that has been slashed (1st picture below)

This second raised shape did not produce the effect needed. Possibly due to colour combination.
Wet voile was used with marbles tied into the fabric and let to dry. This left ‘bubbles’ after being unwrapped
other investigations into structure
this reminds me of a poppy Folded fabric fan
raised shapes to alter the dimension of the fabric
