Sometimes you see a certain something on the internet which jumps out and says “make me!” This was certainly the case when I saw the Prairie Point Star Christmas ornaments stitched by the very talented Sue who writes the Super Mom – No Cape blog. See her tutorial here. I just had to make one, or maybe two, they were so pretty. Printing off the tutorial I settled down to read the instructions, then looked through my Christmas fabric stash to see what I would use. I rather liked the effect of using just two fabrics, so chose two lights and darks and got cutting, pressing and folding those little prairie points. After I had stitched and stuffed the flat squashy base to stitch the points on to. With all the preparation done, I took all the pieces along to my recent quilt club sewing day and sat and stitched those little points on, one after another. That wasn’t too hard at all.
Then with the addition of ribbon and buttons, they were ready to hang, and best of all, in time for Christmas. Many thanks to Sue for sharing her clear instructions.
