I think your binding fabric might be 'Butterfly Carnival' by Fabric Freedom?
 
I've got the blue/green version in a FQ pack, but it's missing the make off the selvedge on this particular fabric.
Can't seem to find any online though...is it no longer available?

I'm still catching up. My strips were sewn in 2018, finished off today.

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

How come you're always running out of fabric? @Iminei  You obviously need to invest in a tape measure  :D I always work out what I need before I start and buy accordingly  :P

Well I sewed the 2 1/2 FQs together and cut quite a lot of 3" strips and now have a lorra lorra binding ... hopefully there will be enough for another cot quilt as I do love it ... pic shows the bonus FQs a beautiful Lime green Ombre (do not adjust your monitors that's what its like) and a Lime with dragonfly motif ... gorgeous!

Well I've plenty of binding left for another project and Im now waiting for the sewn binding to get used to its new position in life using my Christmas present of Binding clips from @Kwaaked, thank you once again!

Im not entirely sure Ive used them correctly and hope they will behave when I get round to sewing the binding down, but there certainly were enough. The tin says there were 100 and I've still got a goodly few in the tin.



So after a cup of coffee I'll whizz round the  quilt and it will be my first finished project of 2019.  0_0
