Thoughts on Colour

I've been playing around with the colours for the Take It Further Challenge. I strip pieced greens and purples together and then appliqued strips on top in the lighter purple and ecru.

It is interesting how the lighter strips appear varigated. I like that effect. My problem is, I don't know where to go from here. This is the place my quilts usually start talking to me. They tell me how to quilt, the colour of thread to use, etc. But I can't figure it out.

I am afraid to quilt over top of the strips and ruin the subtle effect it has right now. Originally, I thought to add beads, but again, I can't decide if that would ruin what I've started. What to do, what to do? I is a good thing this is the second quilt, not the first as I wouldn't have finished on time!
