    Prarie points say "this is a special quilt for a special person" Just that little extra something that adds a lot to a finished quilt.

    they are not at all hard...... I used 30's charm packs 4 inch .... folded them in half then folded it in half again pressing both
    times ....then measured the sides of the quilt and fitted them in...... then sewed them down and hand stitched the back to the front
    wasnt hard at all and I think it does make the quilt alot more special....... thanks for the comments everyone

    I absolutely love prairie points. I use them mostly on quilts for little girls/babies. I have used them on table toppers also. They are rather addictive so watch out :) You did a great job also!

    What do they look like after you've washed the quilt a few times? Do you have to iron them to make them look right? I've always wondered about that, and it's kept me from making them.

    That's what I was afraid of. I don't mind ironing, but don't want to add quilts to the pile.
