Traditional Quilting on Theresa's Quilt

Theresa made this extra-king-sized quilt for her brother and sister-in-law for their 50th wedding anniversary.  She has been making quilts for awhile, but this is the first quilt she made, and worked on it for over three years.  I was so honored to be asked to quilt this for her, and then super excited because she asked me to custom quilt it!

Because this is a traditional pattern, I felt I should stay with that and keep my quilting traditional, too.  I used So Fine! green in the bottom, Hobbs 80/20 batting, and either So Fine! or Glide in the top.

This quilt is so big, that I had a difficult time fitting the whole thing in my camera lens.  

 Thank goodness for my new machine, an Innova 22" with lightening stitch.

 Both of us love this white feathered area the best!  Isn't that great?
 I did some super curling featheres in the border along with piano keys.
I love how this turned out, and I am so thankful that I got to quilt it!

Beautiful. I am setting up a more traditional quilt too, so it was good to see how you quilted this one. I am glad you are so happy with your new Innova. Did you give it a name?

Beautiful work Mary. I love how you've done your feathering (always a big hit with me!!). I had a test drive on the Innova, and I was amazed at how smooth it was to use. No doubt you'll be dabbling with more and more custom with the the new Innova. Take Care.
