    Do more of what makes you happy con't.

    Here is a little more progress on this little WHing. next step is a haiku for the back and quilting! The four corners where the prairie points meet didn't match well so buttons on the corners will hide them.

    here is the beginning:

    love the prairie points
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Adorable, I didn't notice the white dots in the background. Now get it quilted.

    I just saw the "O" in the word you. Aghhhh! unsewing tomorrow. There is one other reversed piece but not so noticeable so that one can stay but the "O" has to be turned because of the saying and the house on it. No matter how much you check stuff, a third eye is always better than two.

    What a wonderful wall hanging! Did you do the continuous prairie points or individual ones? Mine never ever come out even.

    I always do individual PPs. I can fudge them into place better. My quilts seem to never be standard sizes that a specific measurement can be divided into to get the right amount of PPS to fit, so I do what I have to to make things fit. I am puzzled this time that the corners didn't line up. usually have no problem.

    I could do the math and make borders a proper size to fit perfect PPs but where's the fun in that! Ha ha.

    LOL, you sound like me, I would have to fix that too. Luckily you see it now while it's easy to fix!

    Ooooooh, I love it, especially the prairie points in the inner border. Great idea.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.
