Learning from my mistakes!!!

I'm in the process of binding a number of my scarlet and gray quilts.  I have been using a 2" wide double fold binding.  I added a binding on to the quilt below.

I didn't have quite enough so I cut two more 2" wide strips.  When I went to attach them I realized that the majority of the binding had been cut 2.25" wide?

I have made the decision that I need to remove the majority of the binding and trim it down to 2" then reattach it.  At least I figured this out before starting the handing sewing!!!  Why is this so important you might ask?  I just like the way that a 2" wide binding wraps around the quilt.
