Little Quilt on the Prairie...Point...

And the winner of Gold in the event of Procrastinating...Prairie Point Doll Quilt from Kathleen Tracy's Remembering Adelia book.  Kathy set it as one of her monthly challenges in her Small Quilt Talk Yahoo Group and on checking - that was April 2014...and all it was waiting on was two straight lines of hand quilting on three borders (yes folks the binding was a done deal and one short end border was quilted) and it wasn't even out of sight out of mind!...

The crowd goes wild as the finish line not only comes into view but is finally crossed....

An extra challenge I added myself was to use only and all the leftovers remaining in the stash of Judi Rothermel's Rocky Mountains range (the original range) including...
using every piece I could for the backing to use it all up (except the stripes which I have metreage of)...the binding is also pieced...if there is any left (except the stripes) it is teeny tiny bits in the scrap bucket...so two challenges met!...
It was my first time making prairie points, always wanted to but never had...measures 23 1/2" x 29 1/2"...feels all soft and cuddly...and I do love it...

Happy Stitching...

what a delightful little quilt... so glad you finished it..... and I just love the pieced back.... I'm trying to do more of that too..... but I'm often too lazy!
the Prairie points look great as an edging. I have only done a few as decorative on the bottom of small wall hangings - I do love it as an addition on a border...
