    I made prairie point on a quilt for my daughter and they are real easy to do and make a lovely finish to the quilt.

    Thanks for the link. Will use the continuous prairie point on another quilt. When I was cutting my squares out for the D9P I cut waaayyy to many on the colored blocks. haha. So I figured I would try praire points. After I get my top assembled I will see if i want to make them or I could save the blocks to make another top. I've fallen in love with the warm wishes quilts I've been seeing so I might try that. I need to find a quick and easy pattern to make another quilt. My husband is trying to claim the baby quilt for the couch. haha. Poor thing doesn't have one of his own yet!

    Tell him it's necessary for you to go to your LQS and buy looooots of more fabric!

    I have - I think that they offer a little bit more cutesy to the quilt.

    Here's two:

    Nice quilts. I put prairie points on my DGDs quilt. Loved the effect. They were fun

    Aw, thanks everyone.
    My mom and I did the frogs together... she did the hand embroidery and I did the rest.

    She calls it "hers"...

    What hand embroidery? Are the frogs embroidered? Are they

    cross stitched? How lucky you are to be able to sew with your Mom!

    Yes, they are all hand cross-stitched.
    And, my mom's great at the hand-stitching!

    My grams (dad's mom) taught me to sew and quilt... after she died, I asked my mom to start sewing with me and she is!

    I'm really fortunate.

    Hi,

    I have used prairie points on table runners and also on a baby quilt.

    If you make them big enough (but not real big) prairie points can be grabbed by the baby to hold....like the edge of a silky blankie for thumb suckers. Put them randomly placed in the quilt for the baby to play with during tummy time, too. Babies love to finger things and it's good for their small motor coordination.

    Have fun! Post a picture when you get it done.

If they are brightly colored a baby will really love them.

    That's cool thinblebug. I never even thought of having a border after the prairie points. Now I've got something to think about....Thanks everyone

    Love the idea of incorporating the prairie points in the body of

    the quilt for the baby to grab!!!! That's a kinda "genius" idea.

    (wish I had thought of it - win some - lose some..........)

    Did my first prairie points on a table topper the other day. I love them. Just hate to have to press so many little pieces but will be doing them again. They add so much to a quilt. :thumbup: :D

    Oh. What a great idea. I'm going to use this on one of my baby quilts.

    Here is one I did. They were not hard, and the person who received it as a gift really liked them.

    I just wanted to say I love that block pattern - I think it's Friendship Star, but with HSTs instead of squares in the corners to give that diagonal sashing effect?

    I wanted to make a lapquilt for my neighbour as she is so kind and looks after the cat and chickens when we go away and I thought a Friendship Star would be appropriate - I think I'll do it like this!

    Warm wishes is one of the easiest quilts I have made so far. And it has the neatest illusion too. Great quilt pattern...You'll finish it really fast!
