    This is one I quilted and bound myself. Those are Prairie Points around the border.

    I'm a bit embarrassed to brag so much but the photo does not do it full justice.

    I definitely don't hate it. :lol:

    the Arrows point the way! I like the smaller prairie point you've done - adds a lot to the look of the quilt. It's just beautiful - lots of celebration going on! I really like it.

    Beautiful quilt. Love the Prairie Points. Never done them--on the bucket list though. They look difficult, are they?

    Wowie - that is one stunning quilt. Did you do any of it on the new girl?

    thanks all for the compliments! :-)

    i used my Janome MC6600 for the whole thing. i've had it since November and love it to pieces. :-)

    the prairie points are bulky but not as difficult as i thought they'd be. i made them the traditional way - from folded squares. the next time i make them i plan to make them from rectangles folded in half lengthwise, stitched down one side, then turned right-side out to make the pyramid. i thing working with less bulk will make it that much easier.

    Absolutely dazzling! Love it lots. Great use of fabric. The fireworks lends so much movement.

    oh GF! nice quilt, I've seen prairie points as the final edge of quilts but yours are not, are they? it looks like they're loose and then the final border extends out past them and is bound. You really went all out. I'm impressed, AGAIN! :thumbup:

    The quilt is gorgeous and unique. I dont think I've seen that pattern before. I really like it and none of the colors seem to overpower the other colors.

    it's my own design. i'm fairly certain the block is an original. i don't recall seeing one like it anywhere ... but i could be wrong.
