A review of Easy Scallop from EZ Quilting
Are you bored with putting plain borders without much personality on your quilts? If you are, but you aren't ready to commit to a lot more work to finish the quilt with a pieced border, then I've found a solution for you that is easy and quick.
EZ Quilting's Easy Scallop template set makes it easy to make scalloped borders for your quilts. It adjusts to make scallop sizes from four to twelve inches across. The Easy Scallop comes as two pairs of piece-of-pie-shaped templates, a large pair and a small one. The large pair makes scallops from seven to twelve inches. The small ones go from four to seven inches.
To mark a scallop of a particular size, just slip the tab you'll find on the edge of one template piece into the slit marked with the size you want on the other template piece. The two pieces together now form a piece-of-pie-shaped scallop of the size you selected. After marking the scallop edges, quilt as usual, trim to shape, and bind with a bias binding.
The Easy Scallop instructions have pictures for measuring, marking, and binding in only eight steps. Is it really that easy? Yes and no. It depends a lot on how many scallops you want.
If you know the number of scallops you want on each side, it is easy. Just divide the length of the side by the number of scallops to get the scallop size, then round to the nearest 1/4 inch. That's it! You're ready to scallop.
Binding The Quilt
The rest of the Easy Scallop instructions are easy to follow. They tell you how to cut and iron a 1/4" binding for the edge. Making the binding according to the instructions gives you only one layer of fabric that actually wraps around the edge. The binding looks like double-fold bias tape. If you don't like that method, you can use your favorite method for making the binding. But you should still follow the Easy Scallop instructions for applying the binding. It does take a little longer to sew on the scalloped binding because of the pivots where two scallops meet.The look you get from this little extra work makes your quilts more distinctive and attractive.
Sizes: small - 4-5/8" x 8" x 4" and large - 7-1/2"x 7".
