    Re: 9/22/15 Work in Progress!! Free laughs and friendship!

    Thanks for the compliments, ladies. But specially to Sandy: you are a genius! Prairie Points! I would have never thought of them, as I have never done any, but I can't resist a challenge.

    The top is 34" x 34" so far, I could add up to 3 " (finished) on either side (1 1/2" strip one color + 2 1/2" strip second color) so it ends 40" x 40". The fabrics are totally random, I had been sewing HST's from scraps as Leaders and Enders for several months, before I decided it was time for them to be assembled as blocks in a quilt.

    Can you recommend a tutorial on Prairie Points?

      I think the scrappy border would be too busy and take away from the awesomeness of the different blocks. Perhaps a narrow stop border in a solid, then a slightly larger border in white, and finally the largest border in a solid (could be the same color as the stop border).

        Lourixe, that is a lovely quilt top. Do I understand you right that you made this from all leaders and enders HSTs? Wow. After reading Bonnie Hunter's site and hearing folks on this board advocate it, I've started doing that too. Not too many yet, and not enough variety yet to do anything with. But I'll get there.

        I like the prairie point idea too because it is less of a focus than a wide outer border in a print. Although that dark purple small flower print would make an awesome border imo. Those lovely blocks can stand alone.

          That's the easy, continuous Prairie Points - so they could be all one color.

            Lourixe, that is beautiful, and I'm in Sandy's camp on the finish. I love Prairie Points and think that kind of a finish would be the icing on the cake for this project!

            Howdies to all, off to finish a couple of blocks, then read get back into a book.

              Lourixe- great quilt top and love the idea of the prarie points! Now you've intrigued me with leaders and enders.
