    Do you attach the points after you've quilted?

    Many thanks. I have never attempted such things, but need to move from my comfort zone to add a bit of variety - will so scallops and prairie points this year.

    Thank you - I have made prairie points and KNEW there had to be something easier than what I was doing ... I think there is a spendy tool out there but not in my budget. I am eager to give this a try.

    I wondered why you would do this thing called "prairie points"and looked up other threads with that subject...so now I know! I love this Board! I have learned so much. And you are so clever to have thought of this really neat method. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I don't think you add a binding. You sew the points onto the front panel only and later turn under the batting and backing a quarter inch and blind stitch. If others have another way to do it, I'd be interested too. Also, I saw some samples where they didn't use the PP facing outward but facing inward instead, then put on the binding. Interesting effect.

    Could you please tell me what kind of thread you use to sew these to the quilt. With all those layers of fabric, do you use cotton or cotton wrapped poly or what.

    I love the technique, you did a wonderful job of showing how it was done. Thank you.

    You will use about an inch seam allowance. This still leaves plenty of point left. Sew them onto your quilt and then trim the extra seam allowance.

    Thanks for the reply - I was noticing quite a bit also but figured it was for the convenience of having something to work with and hold onto while slip stitiching the backing fabric over the raw quilt edges!

    Thanks for answering my question about the seam allowance. That was what I figured, just didn't know how much of a seam allowance to use. Will have to try these. Thanks for the tute.
