I 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.
This 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.
turn fabric so sides meet and sew to the end.
Press the tube flat.
cut up one side and the fabric will now be on a diagonal.
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.
