Here is a detail from my Energy Pathway piece. I am highlighting here the machine quilting stitching I used, and in particular, the background stitching. I did a meander/fill pattern on the right and on the left I did a more orderly vertical line pattern. This pattern occurred to me in the middle of quilting the piece and I wasn't sure at the time if it would be a good idea or not. As it turns out, I really like the juxtaposition of these patterns against each other and plan to use this again on other quilts.
