A few days, okay... weeks, OKAY... months! ago one of my mom's friends sent me an unfinished, hand-pieced quilt top that her mother began a long time ago and never finished. She has several of her mother's quilts and would love to be able to use this quilt top as well, so she asked me to finish it for her. It's a gorgeous, scrappy Lone Star.
Problem: I don't know how to find the measurements for the setting pieces. Does anyone know how I can measure accurately to be able to finish the quilt top? I've never done a Lone Star before, and so far all I can think of to do is to lay the top over some paper and trace a template for the empty spaces. I would love a better solution!
And after that, I'll need ideas for colors to finish up the top. :) I've attached pictures below.
