Well, the Super Scrappy Triple Irish Chain is about two-thirds quilted and I am so excited with how it is turning out. But this morning, it was time to start thinking about binding. Since this is a "Super Scrappy" quilt, it only makes sense to add a scrappy binding, right ;) So I pulled out my trusty little basket of Binding Scraps. Every Time I have a bit of binding left over I toss it in here and then wait for the right project. I have made 5ish scrappy bindings from this basket and I love it every time!!!
And I was super excited to find that I had quite a few leftover grey, yellow, and navy binding bits left. After some quick measuring and a bit of adding, I realized I only needed to add 3 leftover jelly roll strips. (Those always come in handy!!)
And 5 minutes later, I had a super scrappy binding strip to match my Super Scrappy Triple Irish Chain that will only take me a few minutes to iron because there are only 3 pieces that need to be ironed. Yippee!!! Seriously, I love scrappy bindings and I love using leftover bindings to make them. Such a time saver and oh so much fun to remember all of the quilts that you originally made with each scrappy binding piece.
So what about you . . . Whats your scrappy binding experience??? Love Em, Leave Em, or Depends on the quilt??? Have your used Binding Leftovers??
Oh, and a quick note before I sign off . . . I hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday Season. Ours has been jam packed with lots of family and friends, which has been absolutely lovely, but has gotten me a bit behind on answering emails. Sorry if I haven't gotten back to questions and comments, I will be catching up soon ;) And I found this fun email in my inbox when attempting to catch up this morning . . .

Alright, time for me to sign off so I can catch up on emails and then finish quilting my quilt so I can get this scrappy binding added. It remains to be see if this will be the last finish of the year of the first finish of the new year ;)
