    Question 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.

    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.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
