Scrappy Swoon Quilt Along: binding
Now, without further ado, here is my finished quilt:
For this version of my Scrappy Swoon I chose a bright pink Lecien print for the binding.
I like the way it adds a thin pink line around the quilt, helping the pink in the quilt to stand out. And the back:
Very simple, but again, I like the pink.

I used low volume whites for my binding, cutting a strip from 8 different fabrics. I really loved that look as well.
To bind this quilt you will need 8 – width of fabric strips. If you use a 2.5 inch binding, you will need 5/8 yard fabric. Or just make it scrappy, using what you have on hand. I love binding quilts. It’s the last step before they get to be loved and used and admired.
