    Default Scallop Border help request for the MSQC Girls

    MSQC Girls,
    I posted this questions in a separate section of the forum as I didn't want to fuss you all, but given how desperate I am, and what experts y'all are, I thought I would post my question here as well:

    I am relatively new to quilting, but my journey into this wonderful activity has been made all the easier by Jenny's amazing tutorials! However, I am having trouble finishing the binding on my scallop edged quilt in spite of her great tutorial.

    I bought the tool from the shop, and it worked really well. It took me a bit of time working with it to get the measurements exact, but at the end I was able to get my scallops cut without too much issue. I made the binding via the continuous bias method (also another great tutorial), and was able to sew it on, though that took quite a bit of time and more than a few choice words! My problem is that I do not know how to join the ends to each other where the binding meets at the start/finish. I have watched the tutorial repeatedly, but unfortunately, Jenny never addresses that.

    Do you possible have any instructions/tips/advice? I made this quilt as a gift for my sister's upcoming wedding, and I really need to get it finished. I could always scrap the scallop and just finish it straight, but the scallop adds such a soft, interesting look that I would really love to know how to complete this. I know there must be a way, since people are finishing these all the time, I think I am just too inexperienced/novice to work it out by myself.

    Thanks to all in advance for any help/advice you can provide!

    Hi Abby,

    I've been quilting for a couple of years and just finished my first scalloped edge quilt. Here is the way I complete all of my quilt binding and it worked great for the scallops too. I love Jenny and M*QC very much... but I cannot.. no matter how many times I try... get the hang of the binding tool (and video) that they sell. I found this tutorial online and it's easy and works every time I've tried it. Hope this helps and please share your finished quilt... I'd love to see it.

    When God adds a period, I'm trying very hard not to add a question mark!
