    Prairie Points on a baby quilt?

    Advice please. I'm ready to bind this baby quilt made from my stash. Do you think the prairie points or a plain border looks best?

    I got the Salina Yoon Count My Blessings panel from another board member a few months ago. Also made a matching bag (Lazy Girl designs 1 yard 1 hour) modified with outside pockets.

    I love the look of the prairie points on this quilt. I've never done them, though, so am unsure how they will look after multiple washings of a baby quilt.

    Good point...I didn't think of that. Anyone have any issues with multiple washings?

    Sweet quilt. Both borders look good. The prairie points look like something my grandson would suck on ...

    I like the yellow border best. The quilt is sweet.

    Love the prairie points. They wash up just fine on my granddaughter's quilt.

    Prairie points look great, but don't like putting them on baby quilts. The points can get in the eyes of babies.

    My first choice for this adorable quilt would be the prairie points, then the plain purple border. For some reason I just didn't like the yellow one as much.

    the prairie points add so much, but I would use the type that are folded from the sides with the fold in the middle of the point...just my humble opinion.

    I would not put Prarie Points on a baby quilt.
    Babies chew/gum quilts.
    Prarie Points are small and if dislodged would choke a baby.

    Ditto especially if I know it is going to be a baby girl!

    I love the Prairie points....so what if they get all crumpled up after 100 washings and the baby sucks on them and pulls them......that is a well loved quilt, and will have stories to tell.....

    The prairie points definitely give the quilt additional pizzazz, but when wrapping the quilt around the baby I'd be worried about the points near the eyes.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    The prairie points would make the edge more difficult for the baby to hold on to as they get a little older and pick it up themselves.
    The prairie points are cute but remember it will be washed many, many times.
