You can put them in a border to dress up a simple piece.
How about tucking them into the binding?
The points can overlap a lot...
My all-time favourite quilt with prairie points is Scattered Leaves, using the points instead of binding to finish the edge.
I think the scrappy points on that quilt turn an OK quilt into something more.
While writing up the handouts for the workshop I re-read my Prairie Point tutorials. I also looked at the prairie point instructions I had written in my Scattered Leaves pattern in 2012 and decided the pattern could use a few more details about how to finish the edge with prairie points instead of binding. I went ahead and added more instructions and diagrams, and cleaned up the rest of the pattern while I was at it.
I am pleased to release the updated version of Scattered Leaves. To mark the occasion, I am offering a 25% discount on the pattern in my Payhip shop through the end of November. Use the coupon code PRAIRIEPOINTS.
UPDATE June 2019: All my patterns have moved to my Etsy shop.
You are so clever, and I always enjoy your blog. You share so many great ideas with all of us. I've never made prairie points, but they definitely do add a special effect, and in so many ways! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tips, and the discount! I've never used prairie points and now I'm inspired to try them :)ReplyDelete
I think I would place the cat in another pose in the top right corner. We have had a variety of cats and the pose I am thinking of is the cat is crouched down in the front with its rear-end in the air getting ready to pounce. We fostered a number of kittens over the years so I have enjoyed watching them play and getting to know their individual personalities.ReplyDelete
