Two Block Donation

My little group of quilting friends and I split up a few pieces of fabric that were donated to us and each of us made up quilt tops from our stash with that fabric as the focus. This top is one I generated from the millefleur donation focus. I tried Patsy Thompson's hyper-quilting technique on this one when it came time to quilt it up. I like the way it looks on her website, but either my second color choice for the veins wasn't sufficiently different from the outline choice to show up well, or my technique isn't very good yet or something. I'm considering putting it back on the machine and outlining everything in a nearly navy blue but am a little worried that it will be too dark. Any of you out there with hyperquilting experience have an opinion on this?
