1. Sew cream tone-on-tone 1-1⁄2×16-1⁄2" inner border strips to opposite edges of appliquéd quilt center. Add cream tone-on-tone 1-1⁄2×18-1⁄2" inner border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward inner border.

2. Fold an assorted 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 6). Repeat with remaining assorted print 3" squares and coral print No. 2—3" squares to make 36 prairie points total.

3. Referring to Diagram 7, position nine prairie points on one long edge of a short 

cream tone-on-tone 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. Repeat with second short cream tone-on-tone outer border strip.

4. In same manner, position and baste nine prairie points on a long cream tone-on-tone outer border strip, starting and stopping 4-1⁄2" from each end of strip (Diagram 8). Repeat with second long cream tone-on-tone outer border strip.

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.
