Folded squares of fabric make up the prairie points, and there are a number of ways to construct them.
Prairie Points One at a Time
In the following video, Jodie Davis shows us how to make one prairie point at a time and space them around the edge of a quilt. Notice how the corners match up.
The next video, by The Quilting Stash, also shows how to construct prairie points individually. She includes several helpful tips for spacing and other aspects that will make ensure a neat finish.
Continuous Prairie Points
A faster way is to construct prairie points is to make them in a strip. In this video Carolyn Wainscott demonstrates how to do that using the continuous prairie point method.
Here, Maxie shows a slightly different way of making continuous prairie points. Notice how the points are folded a bit differently, with one row laying on top of the second row, rather than the points being nestled inside one another.
Prairie points add a nice finishing touch, however you make them and wherever you choose to use them. Try these techniques and decide which method you prefer.
