Continuous prairie points video tutorial

Instead of traditional binding you can use prairie points to finish your quilt.

This video demonstrates how easily you can make a strip of continuous prairie points.

As well as quilt binding prairie points look great on pillows, towels, just to name a couple of items.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

  1. Absolutely amazing. I’ve been quilting for 40 years and never saw anything like this. I’m back to making the prairie points I love. Thanks.

  2. This looks like a great alternative to tedious binding. I would like to see a printed page to refer to when I’m ready to do it.

  3. Genius! Just finished putting prairie points on kitchen curtains the old way. The measuring & spacing drove me bonkers. Wish I’d seen this first!

  4. I just would like to know how to sew it to the edge of the quilt, The edge of the strip is finished, and the quilt is not. hope this makes since.
