Free Printable Yardage for making Binding Strips

Share the love!

Nothing is fun about not having enough fabric yardage for binding strips. I’ve been there before- have the perfect idea of what you are going to use, perfect pattern of fabric, color- you name it, it’s perfect.

However, when  you finally get around to making those binding strips, you find out that you don’t have enough….or worse yet, you are only a couple of inches short!

Argh.

Not fun. Not fun at all.

Today, how about if I told you that is was possible to know exactly what you need…and what size of fabric you need for the binding!

Yes, it’s possible.

This will help you figure out exactly what you need and– depending on your strip cuts, the amount of fabric you need.

Binding does take a bunch of fabric, so getting the right amount can be hard.

Pick from the 3 sizes (try a few and find your sweet spot) and you’ll know exactly how much fabric you’ll need for binding.

Now, what I can’t help with is— using the fabric before it gets made into the binding!

I’m notorious for putting it on the shelf, knowing exactly what I need it for– but then, it disappears. Not really, but it gets cut into something else and used in another quilt and then…no binding fabric.

I cannot help with that. If you find a way to curve this behavior I’d love to hear about it!  It might involve in putting it in the project bag, labeling it or stacking it in a special stack just for binding.  I have yet to try one of those out….it might be time!

Now you’ll be all set for knowing your yardage for binding strips- no more guess work!-

    I’ve followed your directions to access the “free” printable cheat sheets, and have been unable to get them, despite several attempts. I’m disappointed that I had to register on your site, without getting anything in return. Please don’t spam me, now that you have my contact info.

    I attempted to download some of your “free” printable cheat sheets the other day and had a problem with my printer. The problem is not resolved and I cannot print anything from this site. Very disturbing. You advertise “free” but nothing is free if not available to print. Please make this site better and user friendly.
