    I found some instructions on how to do prairie points, but they didn't show how to do the corners. I went ahead and did what I thought (and it shows that I didn't know what I was doing).

    Anyone seen a photo and instructions on how to do the corners with the pionts?

    This site might show you what you want to know. Hope so anyway. There is a picture of the corners and that might give you the right idea.

    I have no idea if I'm right, but this way works for me. I didn't even know they were called Prairie points until recently, but have done them on baby quilts for years. Living in a cave has it's disadvantages. Sara

    Sara, Those don't look like they have anything wrong with them.
    Hey, just because it is different , doesn't mean it is wrong! (I don't even know that they are different bc I don't know a thing about them other than how lovely they are).

    That's really pretty! I love the colors!

    Nina,
    Have you posted a pic of your quilt with the Prairie Points anywhere, yet?

    looks fine, I haven't tried it at all. From what I can see that is a lovely quilt, and is that turkey tracks I see? :D

    Is the quilt tied with turkey tracks? I'm not familiar... Those prairie points are so clever. Really finishes the already beautiful quilt! Over the top!
