Custom quilting

Some pictures of a very involved custom quilt that was finished last month.  The straight feather sections were done with the IQ, also the diagonal 1/4" lines.  The outer border was hand-guided, echoing all the applique, and also the straight line filler. 
A very beautiful quilt- all that applique is done with perfect teeny tiny needle-turn hand stitching.  For some reason I can't find a picture showing the whole quilt.  But there are 9 large blocks just like the one in the first picture below.  The quilter had made this from a pattern in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine if I remember right, and the magazine article showed how the original quilt was done.  I tried to keep the same style of quilting as the original, but I did have to change it a little as the original one was antique, and the quilting was done by hand on that one.
