Frankly Scallop, I Don't Give a Clam

Silly we know, but fun for a rainy day. Sue is showing us today how she did the scallops on her Always Believe Quilt.
We use the Quilt in a Day Scallops Ruler, which is currently on back order until May.
Start off by drawing a diagonal line from the corner of the quilt to the corner of the border fabric.
Based on the measurement of your quilt you will figure out the size of your scallops.
The ruler comes with instructions on how to do this along with a size chart.

Line the ruler up against the diagonal based on your scallop size and mark the scallop.
Continue on the other side.
And all around the quilt.

**Big tip from our favorite quilter, Debby Brown,
DO NOT cut out your scallops until AFTER the quilt has been quilted.**
