Prairie Points

I can still remember when I first learnt about using Prairie Points in a quilt how I thought it to be almost as neat as sliced bread. However I only used these once and come to think of it I also do not see it on many other quilts in our region.  Maybe people don’t know about it or if your memory is anything like mine maybe just forgot about these little beauties.


Julie Bellingham from Bellaonline  not only offers the instructions to a quilt but also has very clear photos and instructions for making prairie points which can be found by clicking HERE

If you scroll down on this page you will find a printer friendly icon which will allow you to print this article for your personal quilt file.

Hope to see more quilts with prairie points soon.

  1. I think they are cool, but I don't quite get how you finish off the raw edges when you put them on.

  2. I've answered Gene personally on this comment but if there is anyone else out there wondering about the same thing, do take a look at this link as I think it explains it perfectly.
