I have been working on a rather colorful wall hanging and have decided to put prairie points around the edge instead of a typical binding. A quilt buddy suggested lined prairie piont. Of course, I had no clue so did some research. I know these would look better than just pain points, but of course there’s a wee bit more work involved.
1.First, choose the main fabric and the accent, or liningfabric. Cut the lining 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″. Cut the Main fabr
ic 1 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. (For bigger points, adjust the sizes).
2. Sew the 2 segments together, then press open. Fold the piece in half, right sides out. Place the piece iwth the color side up, and fold towards the center as shown in the picture. Press in place using a hot iron.
Great Hint – Most quilters I know won’t use spray starch because of the sugars it contains is yummy to bugs. I like the stiffness it gives, but not the smell. ALTERNATIVE: Vodka and water! 1/4 cup CHEAP vodka and 2 cups water.
A nice finish and no smell. REMEMBER: This is just for spraying on your fabric!
