Scalloped quilt border

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you a mini made from some miscut fabric.  Several of you wanted a tutorial for the scallop border.  Being that the quilt was already made and I don't want to make another doing a tutorial was out of the question.  I knew I had seen this as a tutorial somewhere but my mind was drawing a blank.


So I googled "scalloped quilt border tutorial".  Google is my own personal library full of everything I could ever want to know, how did I ever live without it!?  Remember the days of running to the library or book store?  Oh don't get me wrong I still love my books.  And to be honest I think its sad that sometime in the future a book with actual paper pages will become a thing of the past.  Anyway back to the scallops, I found a tutorial using almost the same method.  The only difference was I used a stabilizer to stiffen the scallops because mine would be hanging on the wall.  Wouldn't want floppy eared scallops on the wall now would we?!  Click here to veiw the Riley Blake tutorial, its also a free tutorial for the entire quilt.


Enjoy!
