Binding Awaits

I'm really chomping at the bit to get my 2 t-shirt quilts back and get them finished up for my customers. In order to get straight to work on them, I have prepped the binding so that when I get them from the quilter, I will go-go-go.


Ready and waiting. I am rarely known for having things prepped ahead of time. It's aggravating to know that I am a last-minute sort of gal.

Thinking of binding makes me think about my little overflowing box of leftover bindings. I just can't bear to throw these excesses away, so all are stored in this little box. It's obviously time to find a bigger box, wouldn't you say?


I have tried thinking of a way to use these bits. I suppose I could stitch like-fabrics together to make a scrappy binding. I could open them up and cut squares or rectangles for blocks. So far, I've not been moved to do either, so they sit in their too-little box while I wait on a bright idea.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

I have a box just like this. Some of them I have pressed open to add to a scrap quilt and others I have sewn together for a scrappy binding. I have been tempted to use them in making one of those scrappy rope bowls with them. Maybe I'll add that to my 2017 list and give it a try.
