Inquiring minds wanna know

How wide do you cut your bindings?
Do you cut straight or on bias?
Do you save your little pieces?

I cut mine straight and 2.5 inches
And I save the bits
And join them to make a scrappy longer binding
If the strips become too small
I cut them into 2.5 squares
And put in my bin

Works for this gal
And you?

I cut mine wide: about 4"- 4.5" and make them double fold...I like a wide binding, especially on lap quilts, they take the wear and can be replaced...hugs, Julierose

I cut mine just like you do. Julierose has a great idea especially for those quilts that will get a lot of use.

thank Julie for that tip! I am with you 2 1/2 said...

I do 2 1/4 inch binding. If something is going to get a lot of use I do biased binding.
