At last year's quilt show I picked up a pattern for folded quilt blocks. A pattern and instructions were included. Essentially you make prairie points and then place them on the pattern, tack them down and then sew them all together. It is not really hard but it is really time consuming because you need quite a few points to complete each project.
You can use these to make larger quilts, or any other project. This is a picture of some that I made into pot holders.
The second picture is of more pot holders in progress, just needing the binding. I am happy with the way they turned out, but they are too pretty to use. :-)
