I finally decided to use the tree position from yoga.
The right shape is cotton fabric fused to the background and stitched with satin stitch. The left shape is made of sheer polyester fabric and stitched also with a satin stitch and acts as a shadow to the first shape.
The quilting lines are horizontal as in perfect balancce.
I choose a light blue green background and almost tone in tone fabrics for the shapes to achieve a quiet, peaceful effect. The background is hand-quilted as I found the continious machine quilted lines to be too strong.
