    Now instead of making them one at a time, you can use this ruler and make a string of them. Pretty neat I think.

    Cool tool. I have a project I will probably get to this summer with prairie points. I might try this out. If any one does be sure to let us know how it works!

    That would have saved me tons of time when I put them on DGDs quilt. I'm not sure about spending $99 for the set.

    I saw this technique illustrated on Simply Quilts one year. It was a slick process. Can you imagine it with a striped fabric or an ombre?

    here's a nice pdf handout on various styles of prairie points.

    who knew you could get university credits in prairie points.
