    What is your favorite way to create a scalloped edge on a quilt? Any binding tips?

    I take the length or width and divide by the number of scallops I would like to have on the side then using a compass make a template and then transfer design to the border.

    The one thing about scallops is you don't need to have a ton of them to make an impact, IMHO less is more in this situation.

    On scallops I always used a bias binding, much easier to go around curves with.

    I've only made one - my Dear Jane. My scallops were as many as the triangles on the edge, but I made them deeper than the original, and I used a narrow bias edge.
    I did make it double, to make it easier to stitch down on the back, and I tucked a crease at the junction of each scallop, which I stitched down, just as I would the mitre on the corners of ordinary quilts.
