  • Binding

    How wide do you cut your binding strips?
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

      Re: Binding

      When I am using my usual 80/20 batting I cut my binding 2.25" wide. In the very unusual cases where I am using a double layer of batting I cut my binding 2.5" wide.

      I personally like a very narrow binding. It is a matter of personal preference.

                Usually 2 1/2". I have used 2 1/4" when I figureed I would be a bit short to go around.

                    2 1/4 unless I have a thicker backing like Minkie, then it's 2 1/2.

                          2.5. Unless I am short of the fabric I want to use for the binding. Then I have been known to do 2.25
