What are you most proud of? Realizing that making "half" Prairie Points yields a really bold and fun rickrack. It was great just being able to create and have fun right at the ironing board.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think of it as a starting point for creativity! Also, I really recommend using clips and quilt pins; they made my life tons easier than using plain straight pins for aligning and holding multiple layers.

Great idea to use clips and quilting pins - I forgot they make those cool double pins! Quilting really does have the BEST tools. I totally agree with the "jewels" on the bodice; never really appealed to me. Can't wait to see your interpretation!

Can't wait to see the finihed dress. I'll bet it comes out looking really great!!! Good tip using the clips in place of the pins. Keep up the good work!!! Take care, Jan
