I made a baby quilt with a satin scalloped border, and several people have asked how I did it. This is my first post for a tutorial. I hope you will be able to understand my directions.
First,I cut strips of blanket binding into 6 inch strips. I alternated pink and white.
Then I sewed, with a basting stitch on my machine, two semi circles close together (about 1/8th of an inch apart) This must be done with a basting stitch, or it could be done by hand. Note the fold of the binding is away from the semi circles. I sewed this with contrasting thread so that, hopefully, it will show up in the pictures. But ordinarily I would use thread the same color as my fabric.
Here I pulled the top two threads to create a gather to the center. This is repeated on the other side.
Here both sides have been gathered. I used pins to wind the top threads around so they would stay in place until I could stitch them with my machine.
Here I have used a zig-zag stitch to hold the gathers in place.
I trimmed off the "tails". and Now it is ready to be attached to your border like you would a prairie point.
Finished quilt. :o)
