    Dollar Store find

    After seeing the post on here about the holder for binding I saw this little tray, 3 for a dollar, at the Dollar store. Works perfectly for my binding!!

    I thought the same thing when I saw the post for the wooden one. I have a few of these and just stack them on top of one another. They nest well!

    I just put the binding on the floor between my feet. I do have a couple of those I don't use.

    Just the right thing. Looks like it could have been designed with quilters in mind.

    What a great idea! I've seen those and only thought of putting silver ware in them. Now I have to stop at the dollar store today.

    I was using comic book boards and found them great for binding too. The extra fabric can be tucked underneath just in case I did not measure right or to make a label.

    I used to have lots of those little trays in my nurse office. They were so handy for separating little items and keeping them neatly in place. Never thought about using them in my quilt area. Duh!
