The points are made by folding the corners at each end into triangles that meet, but don't overlap. Sew them down to keep them in position. Hope that helps.
Thank you for sharing.. great gift idea...
The pattern I use is 9" wide center fabric and 18" wide border fabric but the same instructions. Batting or not up to you.
I use 12"WOF for center and 24" WOF border. It comes to 17 1/2 " wide and 41" inches long. Thiis my favorite size.
