    This is a beautiful quilt. I keep thinking I would like to make one of these, but it looks challenging. Great workmanship. Thank you for sharing.

    i would probably do a fleur de lis in the odd-shaped triangles. i'm not sure about in the stars, though. lovely work.

    I love feathers....
    A feathered wreath in the 4 patch area, filling the area up to the diamonds of the star.
    The stars you can do a couple things, first a ribbon in each diamond or a feather that would start in the center of the star... sewing up to the point making a loop, and coming back towards the center doing some feathering. Gentle curves, that is what gives it the movement...
    Enjoy!

    I have a blue & white king size that I plan to echo around the stars then just meander little moons and stars.

    Better Homes and Gardens has this quilt in their Quilt-Lovers Favorites volume 9. The designer used outline quilting inside the stars, a diamond shape is quilted on the narrow strips between the stars and a feathered wreath is quilted on the hourglass portions made by the 1/4 sq triangles.
    If I can get a decent pic of it I will add another post. The quilting in the book really goes well with this quilt. Your quilt looks great - good luck with the finishing process!
