Prairie points are three dimensional designs that can be added to your quilting. Often they are used in a border treatment. They are made by folding and pressing fabric and then sewing the finished points to your quilt.
First cut a square and then fold it in half. Next fold the corners down to form a triangle. This triangle can be inserted between seams OR it can be folded again and inserted between seams. In the photo above, the blue fabric has two different types of prairie points made from the 4″ red square. Smaller prairie points have been inserted in the pocket of the beige fabric.
