Scalloped border

Thank you Diane for lending me your scallop border ruler. It sure made it easy to make this scalloped border on Nikki's baptism quilt. I marked the border with the ruler, sent the quilt to be quilted and once I had it home, I cut out around the scalloped border lines.
So far I've sewn the binding to the edge of the quilt and now I'm ready to turn it to the back and blind stitch it down.

This is one of my favorite parts of quilting. I'm not sure why-it's not particularly fast. I must just like being forced to sit quietly, sew by hand, day dream and see a new quilt come to life as it's finished. It's very satisfying.
