    Tartan, I was just trying to figure out how to "stretch" my fabric so I had enough for the binding. What a great tip and so timely for me! Thank you.

    Excellent tip, thanks for sharing.
    To many quilts, not enough wine.

    Tartan,

    Thanks so much for posting! I used your tip to rescue my project. Our LQS had a fat quarter challenge and I mis-cut the binding width (cut 1.25" vs 2.25 inches). Sewed two strips together and squeezed out just enough binding to finish project! Success!

    Thanks for sharing. It's one of those "why didn't I think of that" things. So simple and yet it never occurred to me before now.

    A very big thank you for this! It worked a treat. I had just cut a big length of binding too narrow and there wasn't any to spare. You saved the day!
