As I made some bias binding this afternoon, I was thinking it was somewhat tedious and awkward, but rather satisfying as I'm cutting (with scissors, even) what seems like miles and miles of binding. That a smallish piece of fabric can just go on forever is rather mind boggling.
And as it turns out, I have about 100 inches more than what I need! How did that happen? Since I'm mathematically challenged, I used a chart. It said for x inches of binding cut at x width, I'd need 2/3 of a yard for bias binding. It's possible my chart was for regular bias binding and not continuous, but I would think it would be the same for both. I'm guessing I should have cut it into a square and not used the entire width of fabric. At any rate, I may be able to bind a future baby quilt with the leftovers.
Just another "happy accident" from my quilt corner.
