Win a Free Pattern! Help me come up with a name for these....???


I recently share some photos onto Instagram showing these 'swirly whatcha ma call 'ems'.  I tend to use them in feathery background fills.
No two are ever alike.   


 This one looks like a small flower...


 The one above and below look more like coneflowers... kinda lol


 Not really sure what this one is all about, but i really like it!



 I love the center swirl in this one, but they can get overwhelming if i use too many. 


 Another fanning coneflower...


I tuck them in here and there...sometimes i don't have a lot of space around the feather fill and end up with stumpy ones, ones with missing feathers, a half of one, one with long and squaty feathers....

But i love everone of them!!!

They are all so random, i can't come up with a name!  
Can you??

Leave your 'name idea' in the comment section.  The quilter who comes up with the perfect name will win a copy of my new Star Spangled Picnic Quilt PDF pattern, available soon!

Share away!  You can post as many suggestions as you like too!
 I will choose the winning name for these 'swirly whatcha ma call 'ems' on Sunday June 24th!

How to Make a Quilt Sleeve using Prairie Points!

If you've not tried this sleeve method...it's worth a look!

 Begin with an 8-1/2" square (can be less depending on the size of the quilt or hanging).






 Place the raw edge of the triangles along the edge of the quilt.


Sew less than 1/4" from the edge, so the binding will cover your stitching!



Once the Prairie Point Triangles are sewn into place, take a tacking stitch to secure each point.  Slip your rod behind the Prairie Points to hang. 


It's that easy!!!

Have a wonderful Father's Day...
I picked a handful of wild flowers from our family farm this morning and presented them to my dad.  Other than a hug and lots of love, what else does one need when they are 87?  
This is where i grew up and my parents still live there today. 
 Photo was taken last week by my sister in law.
