I’ve been binding away on a custom quilt for the last couple nights.  I did a scallop border and it has been a learning experience!  Everything about a scallop border and binding takes more time than a straight edge.  I think it will be worth it in the end, but I am surprised at the extra effort.  There is also not a whole lot of information on the internet about making scallops.  I will have to post my method.


Some of you have been asking about my banana bread recipe that I made a couple weeks ago.  Here it is…I usually double this and make 3 larger loafs with it.

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

2 eggs

3 ripe bananas (when my bananas get too ripe I throw them in the freezer–they turn black but are perfect for banana bread)

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp soda in 1/4 cup hot water

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups flour

Mix in order given–grease two loaf pans–bake at 350 for 1 hour.  Toothpick should come out clean!
