Frustration !!

I was and still am very excited with the progress being made on Wool BOM.

Came up with a plan to put the fancy border all the way to the outermost edge.


Got excited when I cut it out and it looked good !!!!

Pulled out my binding. Things started to go awry.
Binding that I made was cut on the grain and not the bias so it wasn't working because it just wouldn't follow those curves.
Drop back and punt. 
I went rummaging in my supplies and found a packaged of double-fold bias and went to work.

One more obstacle - I ran short so I had to stop :(

Monday I stopped at that local quilt shop and found bias binding by the yard - new discovery for me.
I bought 1/3 yard and went home and went back to work.

Not only did I get the binding on, but the hanger is made 

and . . . 

My Wool block of the month wall hangiing is officially finished !!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you countless blessings.

Sorry, my last comment went in the wrong place. It's just that kind of day. LOL I love seeing your wool hanging up on the beautiful hanger from your BF and hung by your DH. A group effort! It really looks terrific.

Wow, this turned out lovely!
I have never seen bias binding by the yard either!
