Irish Star

Now you all will know that I am truly insane.Irish Star 6

What do you think of this edge treatment for the Irish Star? The black is not part of the quilt. The edge of the quilt follows the Irish chain around the quilt. Can you imagine binding all those little squares with a 1/4” binding? Ouch!

But, oh how sweet it looks!


  1. OMG this is absolutely stunning, Deb! What a beauty this would be, but not to make.

  2. O I love it! But to make? Uh-uh.

  3. It would be beautiful, but with all those teeny edges, wow, it would be tough. Could you "finish" the little squares with triangles to make the edges smooth? That would still be tedious, but way better than trying to attach the binding.

  4. I think you are insane….but it would look awesome!

  5. Maybe a facing? Better and better, Deb!

  6. I actually like it on the black background–that would be a nice place for some extensive quilting.
