Vintage White Candlewick Quilt

Like so many of us, this client had a UFO that she had started around 20 years ago. 
Her daughter found the unfinished quilt and asked her mother to finish it for her.

It was a labor of love, but it will undoubtedly be treasured by her daughter and other posterity for years to come.

The candlewicking on this quilt is ornate, and it really is the focal point of the quilt, so my quilting needed to simply enhance the gorgeous design that was already there.

I was able to take a little more liberty in the plain white border.
 I used a repeating feather design (computerized) that I felt complemented the block design.

A picture of the back shows the simplicity of the quilting.
