How I organize binding fabric - quick tip

>> Thursday, January 13, 2022

 This tip will help you if you are more of a quilt-topper than quilt-finisher! I have a lot of quilt tops - I counted 20 in my last post when I organized them. For some of those quilts I did plan ahead and keep fabric for the binding.

This shoe box started out with binding for a couple of quilts - it's actually cut into strips too! I simply added an index card on the end and wrote some details. I included the name of the quilt and a brief description of the fabric. You can see I just cross off the binding when it's used; in this case I finished my Hearts and Churns quilt.

I used to keep binding fabric with its quilt top, but that's not working for me anymore. I took these two fabrics out of one of the bins when I organized and transferred them to the binding box.

I just sorted through a fabric bin and found the fabric that I thought I had saved that will work as binding for two quilt tops I did with my quild (right now I only have a photo of one? Gotta find the other one!)

This is Bonnie Hunter's scrappy bargello. The binding fabric is the same as the border fabric.

Now it's added to the binding box which is actually full! Guess it's time to quilt some tops - or get another box :)
