PRAIRIE POINT CORNERS

Well I took myself off to the quilt store today plus about 6 other places (busy day) and talked to the lady in the quilt shop who said she had used this type of border many times.  She said that the traditional way to do it is to just go across the top and end at the corner then start down from the corner.  She also said it is up to you if you want to play around and try and add extras but after talking to her I am going to go with the simple way.  Enough is enough.  Thanks for you all who commented and gave suggestions.  I just laid the points behind the quilt to get an idea and to take a picture.  Here it is:

I like the way this looks - I wouldn't have thought of that. Proves I always tend to try to make things more difficult than they need to be.

I am really liking your vintage linens quilt. The yo-yo's really do add to the vintage feel. Prairie points are so delightful. My Grandma used to do them and I never paid attention. I like the arrangement you have shown here. I always like simple over complex. Blissful Stitching Dear...

Looks good like that, the corner almost looks like a prairie point too.

Nice but lovely! I agree; enough is enough!

Freda, I love, love, love this! What a gorgeous project! I can't wait to see it completed.

Personally, I too would keep it and throw it over the back of a rarely used chair. It's so beautiful!

Hugs, Pam

Oh wow Freda, here you are finished your linens quilt, and I haven't given mine a second thought! I mean, I haven't even started to pull out doilies that I could use! You have done such a great job of yours, it has given me ideas, but alas they probably won't come to fruition in my lifetime, lol.
