Finish Quilt

1. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.

2. Quilt as desired. Machine-quilter Cheryl Winslow stitched through the centers of the pink and gold 1-1/2" squares, making an 8" diagonal grid (Quilting Diagram). In each fussy-cut floral setting square, she outline-quilted around the rose motif, and in the remaining areas, she stitched a fleur-de-lis design.

3. Fold a small floral 2-1/2" square in half, then in half again, and press to make a prairie point (Diagram 16). Repeat to make 156 prairie points total.

4. Trim quilt top even with batting and backing. Lay out 39 prairie points on each edge of quilt top, aligning raw edges and starting about 1" from each corner (Diagram 17). Baste in place.

5. Using diagonal seams, sew together white tone-on-tone 1-1/4x42" strips to make one long binding strip. With right sides together, sew binding strip to quilt edges, overlapping strips at corners. Turn binding strip entirely to quilt back, exposing prairie points. Turn under raw edge of binding strip and hand-sew in place.
