    Wonderful idea and a great tutorial!!! I most always bring my flannel backing around to the front for the binding. I think this will give a "extra" touch to the quilt. Thank you so much!!

    Thanks so much for the tute. I want to try this on my next quilt. I just had one question. You wrote that the binding material was 1" wide. Is that 2" fabric strip folded in half for 1" wide?

    I think that works out as 1/4" seam, 1/4" on the back side and then approximately 1/2" left on the front to work the scallop into. That would be enough to cover the original seam line of sewing the binding on.

    Do you cut on the bias or straight grain? I'm thinking bias may make it a bit easier to get that nice roll.

    Love that binding idea! Is it a bias binding? How wide did you cut your strips? Great finish for those "cathedral" style blocks!

    That's a nice way to bind...never seen that before. Thanks for sharing.

    Your scalloped binding looks very interesting. I will have to give it a try and thanks for posting the great tutorial. I went to look for it after seeing your quilt in pictures.

    It makes a lovely frame for your quilt. I was curious about the type of fabric you used for binding, it looked fuzzy, like it was a knit or polyester?

    It was quilting cottons cut on the bias to give it the roll.
