My ugly duckling

I decided this piece was done for now so I tacked it on the wall.    I left some parts unquilted.  I may go back and do more.  It has a very sampler look to it.  It certainly did not turn into a swan.  But I shall persevere on this technique because I really like doing it.

I started the quilting with a shorter needle which made for smaller tighter stitches.  I switched to a a longer needle and my stitches got looser and freer.  The fabric tended to pucker more and I like that.  

This is the same photo. In the second one I adjusted the color in Picasa with the neutral color picker.

I like the more puckered look with the big stitch so it sounds like a longer needle is best. Which photo is closest to the correct color?
