Traditional Thursday-Handpieced Stars

This quilt top belongs to a client who found it when going through some family boxes.  It is a hand pieced eight pointed star block that is arranged in diagonal rows by color.   The creator of this pieced had an extraordinary eye for color and composition.  The color combinations and arrangement are truly stunning.

I found a clue about how she was going to quilt it as I was auditioning quilting designs.  On one block there were faint pencil lines to mark off a square pattern between the block.  These marks allowed me to see her vision.  More photos when the quilt is finished.
