Don’t throw away those leftover fabric binding strips

When I finish binding a quilt there is normally some binding fabric leftover. I join all those binding leftover strips together to make bindings for future scrap quilts.

Join leftover binding to create bindings for future quilts.

Joining leftover binding fabric right away and saving it for scrap quilts, saves time, and keeps your fabric organized!

I hope no one throws the small binding pies away. I use these on my charity scrap quilts.

Hi Christi, I keep everything 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" or larger. Everthing frpm 1/4" to 1 1/2" goes to a friend. Everything else goes to another friend who makes cat toys. No waste.
