Pinwheels and Prairie Points is finished

loisflanMarch 16, 2013

Here is a quilt that I made for the new grandson of a dear work colleague. The backing is Minky. I'll wait to make the label until the little guy is born - sometime within the next couple of weeks. I am quite pleased with the results.

That is beautiful, I'm sure he will love it. And the Minky is just the icing on the cake.

It's adorable and so cheerful. What is the size? Are they only called prairie points if they stick up?

Thanks for the kind comments, everyone. I can't take credit for the quilting. A local LAQ did it for me. Marsha, the pinwheels are 7.75" finished. They were made with a charm pack. I've attached the pattern website for anyone who's interested.

The pinwheels look so much bigger in the picture :)

I took a workshop with the American Jane designer - Sandy Klop.
Did you use her fabrics?

I actually have that pattern bookmarked. I also have too many charm packs staring at me -- thanks for posting the picture--
Now, I need to make it!

You did a wonderful job.

Marsha, the fabrics were from the Good Morning line by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda.

Bev, the quilt is 36" x 44". I have seen these little folded triangles referred to as prairie points when they're in the body of the quilt like mine are or when they actually form a border around the outside edge of the quilt. I don't know if they are used instead of binding or if they are sewn into the binding. Maybe someone else can answer that one.

Beautiful, makes me smile! My Mom used the prairie points as the binding on several quilts. They look really nice with a solid color dust ruffle.
