Double points put a contemporary spin on this long-time favorite and they eliminate the need of a traditional appliquéd circle in the center! Using quarter circles, half circles, and three-quarter circles adds another interesting bit of character. Learn Susan’s tips for turning wedge points with the Prairie Pointer Tool and use tricky piecing to assemble the arcs, circle, and background. Points are three-dimensional and design possibilities are endless! Finished quilt is 27″ x 24″.
