    Women are Angels. And when someone breaks our wings......... we simply continue to fly ........ on a broomstick.
    We are flexible like that. OKAY?

    I've never seen this before and will have to try it. I don't know if it is any faster but will see.

    I was making them this way until I found the ruler that makes this much faster and easier. It's fun to make continuous points and make large fabric ric rack out of a strip.
    Got fabric?

    This is really neat. I've never used the prairie point ruler either. I've just made them the one at a time way. I may have to try both of them. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    I've never made Prairie Points yet, but will definitely try this on some of the items I am working on at this time. Thanks for sharing.

    About 15-20 years ago Quilters Newsletter magazine had these instruction along with how to make them in 2 alternating colors. I made a lot of them then. I think their instructions were great. You might get in touch with them and see if they can reprint them or if you can order a reprint of them.

    I learned this technique years ago and it works really good. I am glad someone here reminded me of it. I had almost forgotten about it.....It's a good thing to know. It's really pretty easy too, once you get going on it.
