    Here is my first attempt at Prairie Points. I decided that this very plain baby quilt pattern needed something extra AFTER it was quilted. I just couldn't put straight binding around it.

    It is the 3rd of the 3 memory quilts for my client/friend Laura, from her late friend's scrub tops and over 30 1/4 yards of various fabrics.

    I hope to do a much better job with practice, since it is a nice way to finish a quilt.

    I arranged the points in a rainbow around the quilt, using most of the fabrics I received for the projects. The quilt was quilted with variegated rainbow thread.

    Not perfect, but I think she'll like it.

    Great looking. I have a lot of scraps that would make a border like that - you have inspired me!

    I think that the hardest part of making the Prairie Points was keeping them lined up and equally distant. After I pinned and basted them together in a chain, it was really easy to attach them to each side.

    Thanks for all the compliments!
