This is a follow up to my previous post about wrapping quilt binding around a cardboard tube. If you recall, I concluded in my last post that any old cardboard tube (from wrapping paper, paper towels or even toilet paper) works just fine for storing quilt binding.

I discovered that placing the tube on my sewing machine’s second spool made it easy to pull out just the amount I need. What an awesome way to keep the binding from getting tangled and mangled.

If you don’t have an extra thread spindle on your machine, use a vertical paper towel holder.

Since I had wrapped my binding on a large wrapping paper tube left over from the holidays, I placed a large spool of thread on the spindle then slid the cardboard over the spool. The big spool of thread kept the tube steady.

Give it a try, you will use this tip again and again.
