    I love scalloped edges but they scare me. Your freezer paper idea makes it seem possible. Thanks for sharing the great quilt and the great tip!

    That is a beautiful country-chic quilt! I love the striped binding - so clever!

    What a beautiful quilt! The fabric just calls out for that kind of scalloped border treatment. Love the striped binding, I'm a sucker for pink and green. I just love the whole thing, great job!

    Can't believe how pretty the fabric is. And you did a fantastic job on the scalloped edges!!!

    You did good on the scallops and your quilt is lovely.

    Very pretty!! You did a great job with the scallops! That no-math method to determine the size of the scallops makes them so much easier.

    I love this quilt! You did an excellent job on the whole thing! But, what impressed me the most was your consideration of the longarmer. You marked the top as to where you were cutting the scallops...you didn't cut them til after it was quilted. This made it easier on the longarmer. So many times quilters cut the scallops before hand & then the quilt is hard to load on our frames. We strive to keep the quilts square & uniform as we're quilting them & any help we can get from the piecer makes it easier on us. Thanks!

    Looks so vintage, beautiful floral fabric, soft colors. You did a great job, the scallops add a peppermint twist frame . I love the striped binding and the green marbled backing.

    It's just lovely. The colors seem old-fashioned, and yet very fresh! Great scallop edge!
