Continuous strip of prairie points made using one or two fabrics.
Love the look of prairie points but hate all those little squares of fabric?
How about a strip of them? The only limit to the length is the length of your fabric!
NOTE: We are making a sample piece to practice on. No sewing in this class.
Remember that this is a sample piece for you to practice on and refer back to in the future.
1. 7" strip of fabric: Please make sure that this is cut straight and measures 7" wide all the way across the fabric! SEE PRE-CLASS INSTRUCTIONS!!
2. Smallish ruler. My favorite is a 4" x 10", but as long as it is 3" to 4" in both directions it will work. If it is too much larger it will become somewhat awkward.
3. Scissors: Make sure that they are very sharp and that they cut right to the point of the blades. Rotary cutters will not work. I like my Karen Kay Buckley medium sized (6" blue) ones for this project.
4. Pins: I have used applique pins for this. I don't recommend really long ones, you will be pricking yourself a lot!
5. Pencil or Frixion pen
6. Ironing boards and irons are available.
Continuous Prairie Point preparation instructions to be done prior to class:
7" strip of fabric: Please make sure that this is cut straight and measures 7" wide all the way across the fabric! Press this in half the long way (similar to a binding strip). Make sure to get the raw edges as even as possible.
