I am more and more in love with wide scrappy binding.
I like to cut scraps of the same length – the binding looks great and it is easy to calculate how many pieces you need.
My pieces were cut 3.5 inches wide and my finish binding is 0.5″ wide.
I have to wash it then to take some good pictures.
But only after I will handed it to my hubby. Today is his 44 anniversary!
I hope you are having fun today!
I love that binding..thanks for showing it!!
You are so clever. I don't know if my fingers would be able to connect with little pieces like that, but oh my, it looks fabulous!
beautiful! My last few quilts all have scrappy bindings too, they make me smile!

I like your project so much, I pinned it on pinterest. Squiggly quilting, solids, interesting block, wide binding, scrappy binding – so much inspiration in one quilt. Thank you for sharing.
Lovely, I've never seen scrappy binding (I'm new to quilting) and I think it's great!
I like so much your blog!!!
and i like this binding, kisses for you ♥

Love the binding. I was thinking of using it on a quilt I was putting together yesterday and seeing yours makes me more convinced it would be the right thing to do. Do you cut your binding 4" to finished 1/2"?
Mary L. says
I meant to say 3" wide (and I just reread) Sorry.

I love that binding. It works perfect with your quilt(s). Thank you for sharing your photos.
Gorgeous!! Happy 44th to your hubby!!
How do you manage the seams in your pieced binding? I have to sew mine on the bias so the seams spiral, otherwise I get bumps.
Oh, and for your little nephew: keep your empty plastic thread spools, kids just love these!
I love scrappy bindings too – I´ve bound already several quilt in scrappy style.
Happy Birthday to your hubby – hope you guys have a wonderful day!

What an awesome idea. Thank you for sharing it. It's always a nuisance when you don't have enough of the perfect fabric for binding. I love the quilt. I'm sure hubby will too.
