How to a Make Scrappy Quilt with Scrappy Binding

Learn all the easy ways to make a quilt from scraps with scrappy binding.

I wanted to have different height strips of my colored fabrics attached at that 45 degree angle like a quilt binding and to have each colored strip framed by a white/off white background.

I don’t know if I’m just not using it right, but I just seemed to get small little folds in various places even thought I did try to follow the instructions.

Basting Errors

I opted for a light aqua colour on top (there is a bit of that colour in the floral print fabric) and white for the bobbin.
