Elizabeth's quilt- the quilting begins

I've started the quilting of Elisabeth's qult. I quilt in a hoop and I've started in the center. As i quilt I remove the first lines of quilting that wre used to do the trapunto. Lines are marked with a regular mechanical pencil. I am using a cotton batting and silk thread.
