  2. Is there a formula for making the scallops come out even? I had half a scallop at the corner.

  3. I’m making the scalloped edge quilt for a new great grandchild. It is so sweet, goes together quickly and a great way to use those depression fabrics. If my mother had made a quilt it would have looked like the one in your magazine. She raised children during the depression, and loved the fabrics from that time. Thanks so much for the pattern, I hope to make a few of these and am well on my way. The video on scallops is well done too. Fons and Porter is my favorite quilting magazine.

  4. This is good, however, I could not see her drawn lines. So still not sure how to do it.

  8. I paid the annual fee to see the videos, but when I wanted yo see the video on a scalloped edge, the screen said this was a private video. What gives?

  9. I was not able to watch the Love of Quilting show on my local PBS station today. From the advertisement, a special presser foot was used to attach the binding to the curved edge. I have seen nothing in the magazine issue with the scalloped edge quilt in it or the video about making the scallops. Is the video of the show the only place it
    will be explained?
    I really enjoy your show and have learned so many things!
    Thank you for sharing!
