I want to say thank you to everyone who gave me hints and words of encouragement for a scallop border. I just finished my binding and you were right...it really wasn't that hard. I am so glad I took the time to do it. Thanks again to everyone. Because I mastered posting photo's while in the UGH club (thank you Bridget!), I think I will just put a pic of my quilt right here...

I used the Sharon technique for the pink and purple baby quilt in my profile and worked perfectly. Just make sure you don't clip too much into the V. Good luck.

Thanks for the refresher. It is always good to review a technique even if I have seen the video previously. Princess darts--haven't thought about those since I made my clothes!

Don't worry, it really is no more difficult than a regular boarder. If your scallops are very deep ones you will just work into and then out of them. You should really have no problem if you are using the bias and you will love it when you are finished.

Definitely bias as that's the only method which will work smoothly around the scallops. Is this a bed quilt? If so, you'll want double fold strips because they'll wear better and the edge of the quilt will receive
a good deal of wear. A wall hanging, on the other hand, could get by with single fold strips.
