Finished UFO

IMG_0859I wonder why I have so many UFOs.  There has to be a reason.  This week, I made a table runner from a stripped piece that I had spiraled.  I learned this technique in a pocket book class in Vermont.  I’m not sure why we did this.  I never did make a pocket book from that class.

 

IMG_0855This is how to spiral.  Fold a piece of fabric down at a 45 degree angle.  Place the machine needle 1/4″ from all sides at the point of the top fabric.

Press the tube flat.IMG_0857

Now I know why I did not finish the UFO.  Stripes do not line up when doing this.  Some UFOs should be “left of the back seat of a bus” or at least tossed into the mile a minute bin,  I will be more careful in choosing UFOs in the future.  Some are not worth finishing.

Happy quilting.
