I wind my binding on an empty serger cone and place the cone on my sewing machine spool holder.  This keep it organized,  It feeds off smoothly as I sew it on my quilt.

I wind my binding up around my hand and then place it on my free standing spool holder that hold cone thread.  It works great and just feeds into the quilt as I sew.

That's what I do too Jeanine except that I split a paper towel "tube" lenghtwise and when I do binding, I slip that around the spool holder

And they do provide more entertainment for the cats when you use Gini's technique!  ;-)

I've done this, too, but sometimes there is just too much "stuff" on my floor and it is better to control the binding a bit!

I don't "control" my binding either.  I throw it over my shoulder and just start sewing.....LOL>
