Mixing Modern & Traditional

We all know about the ongoing debate over modern vs. traditional. Personally, I don't like to get involved, it's not worth it to me. 
I recently machine quilted this beautiful quilt that belongs to Ruth. When I received the quilt I immediately thought it was the perfect combination of modern & traditional.
So, when it came time to machine quilt, modern & traditional is exactly what I did!
I machine quilted very traditional feathers in each of the setting blocks, I love the subtle detail that they added.
The pieced blocks all have a geometirc spiral. I love the modern feel that it adds to the quilt. The borders, I also machine quilted, feathers, circles and a geometric spiral. 
I love the way it turned out!
See! Modern and traditional really can mix together and be friends! :)
