    Thanks for sharing. Has gone into my saved list to try at some point in time. The prairie points really finish off a quilt nicely.

    Hi! I love praire points and specially these because they're staggered. Gives a little detail instead just laying each offset of the other. Chris

    WOW. I would never have dared try a prairie point border on my own but these look positively simple enough for me to do without being afraid I'll ruin them. Thank you so very much.

    And if you want them to be two colours, cut 2 pieces of fabric at 3 1/4 and sew them on the long side and do the same cutting, making sure not to cut through the stitching line. Fold the same way as in the tute.

    Nice tutorial, but it doesn't addrress what to do about turning corners. The quilt shown looks like it is cut on a curve, no 90 degree corner to deal with.

    Thanks so very much for posting this. Seems like this was shown on Simply Quilts YEARS ago but who would remember the details? Not me, for sure!

    Me and my ladies raid our local supermarket when they have these on offer: http://www.apluswhs.com/products/uhu...n-liquid-glue/ they are an absolute "must" in your quilting box.
