    i would put them on it. they're actually really sturdy. i thought they would be fragile since you cut into the fabric every 4 inches.

    the cuts are actually buried into the binding or in the quilt sandwich so its really strong.

    Then, I accept your challenge and will make a D9P and put a prairie point on it JUST to prove I can .
    Whether, we will ever see any pictures here is anyone's guess, but you have at least inspired me to go one more step for our hospitalized veterans ... good job!

    This really is one of those things, that you learn by doing.

    Prairie points on a tote would be VERY awesome, I am thinking.
    And, it isn't just a matter of talking to a computer and downloading pictures... all the baby talk/coaxing will not put a camera into my hands. Other than that, it would probably be a breeze! LOL

    KLue, thanks for the link to the tutorial. I looked and I want to try. I have been stumped on a lap quilt for some time now on finishing the border and binding. I would love to try this method.

    make them and then post pics for us.

    its really not hard at all. i attached them to the quilt last night and it just looks awesome.

    i used mine pointing in - i posted pics for everyone and asked which way they liked it and it was an overwhelming "pointing in" response.

    i hope to post the finished quilt tomorrow for everyone to see.

    I would like to know how you did that. I am getting ready to make prarie points for an Amish Wallhanging and that technique would be perfect.
    Please let me know!

    Love the continues prarie points (and fabric). Having only paper pieced thus far, how do you make continues prarie points? I need to make a baby quilt and think they would look really nice.
    Thanks for your response!
