    Do any of you ladies know where there might be a tutorial on making mock scallops on a quilt round?

    That pattern is from Sue Garmen's 2011 pieced BOMC for The Quilt Show. You need to be a member to download it for free, or you can buy it the kit here http://www.thequiltshow.com/o/store/...category_id=11 The pattern isn't for sale by itself.
    Membership is only $25 for a 6 month subscription.

    However, ;-) , if you're familiar with the piecing for a Bargello quilt, it can be done the same way.

    Yes, that's where I found that .... That BOM doesnt start til May.

    When I found it I had already started making baskets and was not sure how I wanted to border it up. When I saw that one ... I thought YES!!! that's the one!! .... I see it as bargello meets piano keys!

    If I can't find it elsewise ... I'll either figure it out or purchase it from there.

    The BOM started in November 2010.

    That portion of the larger quilt will be available in May, and only to TQS members (although, to be honest, I'm not sure if it's a basic or paid membership).

    It really shouldn't be too hard to figure out - that looks like it's on a 14x7 grid (twice as long as high), so you would just have to resize it to accommodate your needed dimensions.

    I've been visualizing this lots ... and thinking it thru as to the how to. Right now I've got about 60 different fabrics in the baskets, so would want to use all of them in this border. I'm thinking the basket colour (one fabric, not a patched basket) would be that ribbon between the white of the scallop and the multicoloured keys.

    One day I'll probably try it with some other fabrics for the prototype! For now, no rush ... and still many baskets to make!

    Those are both very pretty. The one I am thinking of is a 1 5/8" strip folded and put around so it looks like scallops. Not sure how it is done.

    So just a bias strip sewn onto the background fabric in a scallop shape? iow, the quilt edge is still straight, right?
