    Love your quilt! Not sure which I love te most...your color choices or the prairie points. Haven't made any points yet but now I just might! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Cute! I was introduced to a lady who like to put prairie points in her quilts for loved ones. She made a quilt for her daughter and her daughter insisted she write little notes under the prairie points about the love she has for her daughter.

    So for anyone who makes a baby quilt, you can add this idea at the last minute before you gift it at the baby shower and have everyone there write a note to baby.

    Incidentally this quilter lady was diagnosed with cancer and will not probably make it through. So her daughter will have those love notes from her mother to cuddle with when she can no longer say the words.

    Since they are just folded and don't have any interfacing or other stiff material, they are soft enough; I don't think they will do any harm to a little one.

    My question is, why does the original post have a "thumbs down" tag for such a beautiful quilt?
    yeah, I think that is what happens to my friend too. Plus she always buys more fabric than what the pattern calls for. I'm trying to get her to trust the numbers, and she's improving a bit there because she sees the leftovers.

    I don't know why that thumbs down icon is there. Most likely I accidentally clicked it and didn't realize it. my mistake.

    I used the 'draw a line diagonally and sew 1/4 on each side method' or 2 at a time is what I call it. I thought about Jenny's 4 at a time method, but that would create blocks of a different size and I was afraid that would screw up the prairie points. I should have set down and worked the math, but I wasn't in the mood, so I just went with the pattern directions.

    I'm thinking the 4 at a time method would make nicer looking pinwheels. The original ones are a little too big for me. Plus the entire pinwheel will be the same fabric and there will be 24 of them, not 12.
