Binding

This is leftover binding.


There are strips here from over 60 quilts; a few pieces as short as 5in, several closer to a metre and a lot in between. I can't bring myself to waste them - there must be enough here to bind several lap size quilts! But I need the right quilt; I'm not willing to sacrifice the integrity of one of my designs just for the sake of using it up. Maybe I'll have to design a future quilt with scrap binding in mind?

Or stitch them together and make a fun striped binding. :-)

If you cut your binding at 2.5" you could do some Scrappy trip around the world blocks and / or some scrap vomit blocks.

what about using the binding for some potholders for gifts or for binding and trim on pillowcase type dresses to donate to charity?

I love using wacky binding. So far I have done it with kids & baby quilts =)

if the binding is cut on the straight then you could use the strips to make string blocks.
