Working on the Round Robins



Hello Everyone,

I hope your Summer (or Winter) is going well. Here at my place it hasn't been tooooo terribly hot yet, but then, anything over 85 is too hot for me ;)

What little sewing I've been doing has been on these two round robins I've been working on.


The 30s print one is done. After unfolding it, I knew it needed some prairie points going around it.


As you can see by the picture, the prairie points are only sewn along the bottom edge in the seam line. Once Denise gets this home, she can iron them down and do her quilting, then they'll stay pointing up.

These prairie points are really easy to make. I took a few charm packs... laid one out, and folded it diagonally.


Folded it diagonally again.


Made another one. Then stuck one point of PP 1 inside of PP2, I like there to be about an inch between the two points.


But you can pull your PP inside further if you want to, you'll just see more of the jointed place once its' sewn onto the quilt.

 I put this under my machine and sew an 1/8 of an inch from the edge. Putting PP2  inside PP1 as I sew along.


 Then just keep adding them as you go. Sewing them all in a straight strip.


 Here is a close up of some of them sewn on the quilt top.



Now on to the pretty star RR. Here's my pieces, I just need to sew them all together and put them on the top.


My scrap project is coming along nicely. I've decided to pull more scraps, from another bin. I'll cut and trim those then buy some clear plastic bins and put different sizes and shapes into them. So, an on going project. I wont be making any quilt tops out of them just yet... although I have plenty of ideas :)

Have a great week ya'all.

Linking up with Lorna for Lets Bee Social this week. Thanks Lorna.

  3. I love your addition of the prairie points...perfect! They add the perfect, charming, finish! I really should add them to a project soon. My MIL added them to a quilt she made our daughter and I have always loved them.
    85 degrees sounds lovely to me...I think we can count on seeing that here long about October. :)
