The Prairie Pointer

Prairie Pointer by Susan K Cleveland
I recently watched an episode of The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims.  The featured guest was Susan K. Cleveland, and she demonstrated a really neat way of making prairie points using a tool she developed called the Prairie Pointer.

Since I am participating in Flimsy Fridays (setting aside every Friday for working on and finishing my unquilted quilt tops), I thought that adding prairie points to some of my flimsies would be a fun thing to do.  On The Quilt Show, Susan shares her simple method of tackling priarie points and also shows different ways that you can use prairie points in your quilts.

Here Susan demonstrates just how easy prairie points can be using her new tool:

And did you know that you can use prairie points in other areas of your quilts?  I love the way Susan gets creative with them and even adds beads to some of them.  If you are intersted in finding out more about using prairie points for other areas of your quilts, check out this You Tube video:

I have no affiliation with Susan K Cleveland but when I saw this tool and how it would make my quilt life a little easier, I wanted to share it.  If the Prairie Pointer looks like a tool you would use, you can purchase it by clicking here

I really enjoyed this episode of The Quilt Show and after seeing how simple it is to make prairie points using Susan's tool, I'm pretty sure that I will be adding them to more of my quilts.

Wishing you a day of creativity and experiencing at least one thing that brings you joy!
