Add Borders and Finish Quilt

1. Sew blue print 1-1/2x16-1/2" inner border strips to opposite edges of quilt center. Add blue print 1-1/2x18-1/2" inner border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward inner border.

2. Fold an assorted light or medium print 3" square in half diagonally with wrong side inside to make a triangle; press. Fold triangle in half again and press to make a prairie point (Diagram 5). Repeat with remaining assorted light and medium print 3" squares to make 36 prairie points total.

3. Referring to Diagram 6, position nine prairie points on one long edge of a tan print outer border strip, starting and stopping 1/2" from each end. Space prairie points evenly and overlap adjacent edges; make sure all double-folded edges face in the same direction. Once you are satisfied with placement of prairie points, pin in place, then machine-baste them to border strip with a scant 1/4" seam to make a short outer border strip. Repeat with remaining tan print outer border strips and remaining prairie points.

4. Sew multicolor circle print 4-1/2" squares to ends of two short outer border strips to make two long outer border strips. Press seams toward multicolor circle print squares.

5. Sew short outer border strips to opposite edges of quilt center. Sew long outer border strips to remaining edges to complete quilt top. Press all seams toward inner border, making sure tips of prairie points point toward outer border.

6. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste. Quilt as desired.

7. Bind with tan print binding strips.
