Disappearing nine patch variation quilt with prairie points

Quilt in progress.

This quilt top has been made using:

  • one and a half charm square packs of Hunky Dory by Moda for the blocks
  • cream fabric
  • scraps of fabric for the prairie point cut in 4 1/2 inch square
  • polka dots fabric in pink and pistacho for the sashing

See the other quilt I made with another pack and a half of this same fabric: Disappearing nine patch quilt.

How to make prairie points

My prairie points lie next to each other without overlapping.

To calculate how many you need:

  • Write down the size of the prairie point, eg 4 inches
  • Divide the size of the side of the quilt, eg 60 inches, and divide by 4 inches
  • You’ll need 15 prairie points

To make a 4 inch prairie point you’ll need a 4 1/2 inch square of fabric.

I used the open folds at centre prairie point assembly but did not overlap my points.
