I found some instructions on how to do prairie points, but they didn't show how to do the corners. I went ahead and did what I thought (and it shows that I didn't know what I was doing).

Anyone seen a photo and instructions on how to do the corners with the pionts?

This site might show you what you want to know. Hope so anyway. There is a picture of the corners and that might give you the right idea.

I have no idea if I'm right, but this way works for me. I didn't even know they were called Prairie points until recently, but have done them on baby quilts for years. Living in a cave has it's disadvantages. Sara

Sara, Those don't look like they have anything wrong with them.
Hey, just because it is different , doesn't mean it is wrong! (I don't even know that they are different bc I don't know a thing about them other than how lovely they are).

That's really pretty! I love the colors!

Nina,
Have you posted a pic of your quilt with the Prairie Points anywhere, yet?

looks fine, I haven't tried it at all. From what I can see that is a lovely quilt, and is that turkey tracks I see? :D

Is the quilt tied with turkey tracks? I'm not familiar... Those prairie points are so clever. Really finishes the already beautiful quilt! Over the top!
