Create Straight, Scalloped or Wavy Borders with Minimal Math!

Do you get bogged down in the math while measuring and cutting borders? In the following video, master quilter Darlene Zimmerman shows how she creates borders with no tedious measuring. Ingenious!

She goes on to explain how to make both scalloped and wavy borders without complicated math. Nothing dresses up a quilt like a scalloped border and Darlene makes it so easy!

She uses the Easy Scallop Tool (get it here) to create the curves. Very little measuring or math is involved (although there is a bit).

Watch as Jenni and Darlene provide several useful and time-saving border tips. These are great to have in your quilter’s toolbox.

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!
