Blue Stars Quilt

My customer Peney makes the most exquisite quilts with wonderful piecing, fabric selections and colour choices.  This Blue Stars Quilt she has made is no exception.  The quilt is made up of blocks made by various piecers from Peney's quilting group which Peney has sewn together.  Many of the blocks have the name of the maker embroidered on them.  I love the golden highlights throughout the quilt:  in the corner blocks in the outer border; the corner blocks of the body of the quilt, as well as some of the carefully placed corner stones.  You really get the impact of the golden highlights when looking at the whole quilt.

I have quilted the Blue Stars Quilt with feathers in the white setting triangles of many of the blocks, continuous curves in the blue sections of the blocks, a tiny scroll through the  narrow sashing and semi-circles with feathers and piano keys in the borders.  Here are some close ups of the individual blocks.

The following is a close-up of the quilting in the border -
