What materials did you use? A mix of sweet fabrics including the Delilah collection by Tanya Whelan for Free Spirit and Cotton Couture solids in Candlelight (yellow) and Bright White. The green border is a print from True Colors by Heather Bailey. I used the Quick Point Ruler to make the dotty prairie point binding. The back is Minky Dimple Dot in a butter yellow color.

I'm partial to Tayna's fabrics, too. But the red and white polka dots is to die for. Really sets off the quilt.

I just finished attaching prairie points to the border of my quilt and have no idea how to finish the corners. Your quilt is so cute with the points! Any suggestions for finishing the corners? I have searched the internet to no avail. Thanks!!

Well, I couldn't find instructions either! I tucked the fabric edges under and if you look at my quilt, you'll see that you can see a little "bump" of the back fabric from the front and it looks okay. There is a lot of bulk there and I did trim back a little to eliminate some of the bulk before sewing. I don't know if this the correct way to do it, but it seemed to work! Good luck!

Mimi Dietrich's Craftsy class "Finishing School - Bindings and Edges" may address this question. I loved the class.
