This stitch uses blanket stitch for an embossed filling of the scallop shape. A series of such shaped blanket stitch scallops can be used to cover a larger area of the pattern. A series of continuous and adjacent scallops can be made to make beautiful fabric edgings. Refer to blanket stitch scallops for an idea.
