I was commissioned to take a stack of pieced star blocks from a cedar chest and make a quilt.  The blocks were both hand and machine pieced.  I used off white fabric on the background and the backing to keep the quilt looking antique.  I quilted feathers and more feathers and hand bound the runner on both sides.   It was very labor intensive but the results were worth it.  It is spectacular and sure to bring back memories of the original piecer.
