Hello Everyone,

In my last blog post about my Prairie Star quilt, I was almost done!  I just had to put the outside borders on.  Well, guess what the quilts complete!  I am very excited at how it turned out too.

The borders really finish it off.  But one of the design elements that I love most about a Judy Niemeyer design is that you alway get perfect points.  The reason that you do is because the "float" off of the seam allowance.  She calls them floating points.  

They are perfect for us that have trouble when piecing stars, compasses or points and get them caught in the seam allowances.  Thereby chopping off the pointy ends.  That is why they float!  Genius right?

Since my design wall is no longer on my wall, because of our move, I had to use the design floor.  Anyway, now I have to get a backing and quilt it.  This will be part of my trunk show and will eventually hang in my new family room in Arizona.  I think the colors will be perfect!  Find the pattern for the Prairie Star here.

Learn this paper piecing method with me!  I teach it on Craftsy and you can get it for just $19.99.  Just click here.

Onto the next project!  I think it will be the Tea Leaf Table Runner.

Until Next Time...
