Free Half-Square Triangles From Scrappy Binding
If you are already making hand towels from old bath towels and scrap fabric, why not take it one step further?
This idea works when assembling any scrappy binding.
Chain-stitch the binding strips together.
Before you trim the threads, make a seam 1/2″ from the other seam.
Trim threads and cut between the two seams.
In addition to a scrappy binding, you are left with a half-square triangle collection.
These can be trimmed to 1 1/2″ and used in your next scrappy quilt project.
