    This was only the 3rd large quilt I had made.....almost 5 years ago now.

    The pattern is a bit different from yours as they ribbons are not made from individual blocks, but I did scallop the edges (and did a cross hatch quilting on the border).
    Now that is cute!

    I agree that they are very feminine. And I've wanted to do a scalloped border at least once. But a lot of the things I design aren't feminine...maybe girly punk, but not that cutesy, pretty in pink, "oh my gawd that is so freaking adorable" feminine. Nothing that I could put a scalloped border on and still take seriously. Like putting a frilly pink dress on a Goth.

    I like the scallops. I agree the ones on your design are too deep. It would be awsome with gentle scallops. Let us see it when done. I really like lovespaper's quilt. I have used many patterns from Quilters Cache.
