A New Art Quilt with a Traditional Block

It took me more than a month to do all the detailed piecing and quilting on this wall hanging, which has a star block pattern at it's origin. I overlapped the blocks, added shadows, and hand-painted the background sateen fabric. There a lots of surface design techniques included here (including potato starch resist over a hand dyed cittib), so I hate to think how many hours all this took me! Dupioni silk triangles add panache, too..
