A Simple Technique for a Charming Finish!
Prairie points are a delightful touch wherever they are used in a quilt. They add a bit of dimension and a lot of charm, as well as being an interesting design element to break up the surface of a quilt.
They’re not hard to make (see two methods here) although they do take a little extra time. It’s well worth it for the wonderful effects that can be achieved from them.
A wonderful application is to add prairie points to the outside edges of a quilt. It’s not hard to do and is a lovely finish for a quilt.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
