So I now have about 5.5yds. of nicely prepared black and red striped bias binding left for whenever there's a quilt needing just those colors and exactly this amount! My Mum was fond of quoting Robert Burns, "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft agley" she used to say.
It is difficult to see the narrow binding from a distance so here's a close-up.......and on the much lighter opposite side, the binding shows more.
Another quilt on the "completed" list.
I have no use for this wall hanging so it will likely be donated for a charity auction.
