Sweet little Hoot has borders and edging. It’s small, only 11” without the prairie points. Now I just need to decide where and how to hang it. My daughter is lobbying hard for her room as the location, though I think the sewing room needs a little whimsy!
Hmmm. I think I might go back and add a little free-motion something in the blue border. I meant to initially, then thought it would be too much, and now I’m reconsidering again.
There was quite a bit of hemming and hawing involved in getting this little quilt done. I knew it wanted prairie points but went through a few point layouts before deciding the details.
I wanted to try denser prairie points than I have in the past, with different colors peeking from behind the points on the front. The first one was too blue. The second was better, but still not quite right. Too crowded maybe.
OK fine, I guess I don’t like dense prairie points! Or maybe they were just too dense for such a small project. Back to my usual more widely distributed points.
Then there was option 4, which appeared after I sewed the points to the quilt top. (By the way, I sew my points to the quilt top before I layer and quilt. I just didn’t get a picture of option 4 until after I quilted things.)
I think this would have been cute just like this too, with the points pointing in, and binding to finish off the edges. However, besides having way too much fun working with this little owl, I was on a mission to take pictures for a tutorial on finishing a quilt edge with prairie points, so Hoot got regular points.
Stay tuned for the tutorial. Hopefully tomorrow if I can finish up less fun jobs and get writing!
