I need some info on how to sew the jagged edges of the quilt on trip around
the  world.
If any one knows a easy and simple way to sew the edge please let me know.
I already sold my first wall***!!!! I was extatic about that!!!!!

                                                Thanks

Those teeth are called prairie points.  You could probably find the
directions in a quilting book that has the basics.  I've never made
them, but I do know you take a square (?) and fold it to make your
points.

CONGRATULATIONS on the SALE!!!!!!!

I'm not sure what you mean by "jagged edges of the quilt" -- do you mean
you ended up with "jagged edges" because you set your Trip Around the
World on point (so the tips of the squares are at the top, instead of
the square sides of the squares) and the quilt thus has the side-tips of
the squares sticking out -- and you want to BIND them?
        Or do you mean you want to put an "alligator-teeth" edging (I
think you may have Prairie Points in mind) on a quilt with square edges?
        And so, this didn't ANSWER your question at all, but simply
asked more questions.  So be it.
        I need more information before I can even try to answer your
question, Shawna -- but either way, I suspect you've started an
interesting thread -- whether it be "how to bind sharp corners" or "how
to make Prairie Points".  Let us know.
        And good luck, happy sales, and
        Happy Trails!

Are you talking about the points that actually stick out from the edge of the quilt
in jags, which is known as prairie points, or are you talking about have the dogtooth
or sawtooth edges that are on the edge of the quilt but do not extend past the
edges?

Hi,

I received an sales thing in the mail for a Fons and Porter book.  Included
was an easy
way to do prairie points for the edge of the quilt.  I of course can't find
the paper right now,
so I can't offer to send it to you. But maybe if you check out some of
their books at the
fabric store you can find it???  Sorry, hope this isn't as little help as
it seems.:)
