How to Make Prairie Points

Make prairie points by folding square twice on the diagonal.

Prairie Points with Open Folds at Side

  1. Fold a square diagonally from corner to corner, placing wrong sides together.
  2. Fold the square again along its longest edge, taking care to align the very sharp, angled edges with each other.

  3. Press lightly to keep the folds intact.

This type of prairie point produces a finished triangle with an open edge along one side. Tuck triangles into the openings as you distribute them along the quilt.
