This is my little quilt that grew (adding verses to my quilt anthem along the way).



I followed the tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company to make the big stars.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkm3nCferp4&feature=plcp
They are approximately 26 inches across.  (Approximate is the correct word here!)



The top edge has a star wrapped around onto the back with a knife edge finish.  (So maybe it is sharp like a serrated butter knife edge...)



And the star on the back is there because I didn't quite get it right.  Never the less, my one evening lap robe turned into a week long queen-sized (I swear it looked bigger in my machine) bed quilt.  

Details and the rest of the story on my blog.  http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-little-quilt-that-grew_29.html

Oh... the two extra verses?

Points cut off and I don't care

and

Won't quilt out and I don't care
Won't quilt out and I don't care
Won't quilt out and I don't care
At least its mostly square

I like the idea of a wrap around star! 

I had no idea that those blocks were that huge!!! wow!

It is lovely...

So on this type of quilt--there is binding only on the three edges?

Thanks... It is kind of a pillowcase treatment, where I made the seam at the top before I quilted it.  That gives you what I believe is called a knife edge.  Then I put binding around the other three sides.  The only trick is that you need to think carefully about how you quilt it so you don't end up with bunches of fabric at the seam.  I did OK with that.  On a smaller project it would have better control and would probably do more of a free motion thing that left space at the edge.
