Use the Same Ruler and Technique to Make Scallop, Wave and Vine Quilt Edges!

Have you ever considered a scalloped edge for your quilt but been reluctant to give it a try? It can be scary to think about cutting into your gorgeous nearly-finished quilt to create a scalloped edge. Fortunately, it’s easier than it may seem and the right ruler makes it foolproof.

In the following video Jenny from the Missouri Quilt Company walks you through every step. She recommends the Scallops, Vines and Waves Template ruler from Quilt In A Day. It comes with excellent instructions to help you determine size and placement of your scallops so they come out even (so much easier than trying to trace around a bowl!).

Once you have marked and cut the scalloped edge, you’ll need bias binding to finish it off. Our How to Make a Continuous Bias Binding article has a video by Jenny showing you a super easy way to make bias binding strips.

You can purchase theĀ Scallops, Vines and Waves Template ruler from Quilt In A Day here.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
