    Help with ideas to finish #3


    I just uploaded a picture to the group of the current state of my #3 UFO. I have a problem and was wondering if I could get some ideas on it. I have 25 blocks completed as shown. The blocks will finish at 8" so it will be 40" x 40" which I'm not sure is a great size for a lap quilt. I don't have any more of the neutral batik I used and can't find any more in any shop so I can't make any more blocks.
    Originally I thought I would add a border but now I'm second guessing myself. Maybe I should just make it into a table runner. What would you do?

    Thanks in advance for the help!


    Your blocks are beautiful! I vote for the quilt. Do you know the name of the neutral batik? I could check around here for you if you'd like.


      I vote for the quilt also.


        Are you completely out of the background? I think if you added a border you would want at least a narrow border of the background first. Maybe you could find a background that would close!y match and then put a wider border


          Thanks for the help - I will make the quilt. I don't know the name of the neutral batik but I like the idea of using something similar for a narrow border. I'll keep you all updated . Thanks agin for the encouragement and offer to help!

          About this Group

          Do you have some UFOs (UnFinished Objects) that you want to finish? Are you having a hard time choosing what to finish next, or are you just not feeling motivated? Do you have some specific goals you want to complete in 2018? This group is for you! We have a fun way to get those projects done in 2018.

          Here is how it works.

          First, you create a list, numbered from 1 - 12, of 1) things you want to finish; 2) OR projects you want to do; 3) OR a combination of 1 and 2. Then, you post your list to this group. (You can edit and change your list at any time.)

          Every month, this group will publish a random number between 1 - 12. We will each work on that number from our list. If you prefer to do your list in a particular order, you can certainly do it that way as well. When you have finished your project, please post a picture here as well.

          We’re here to support each other. It’s amazing how knowing what project to tackle helps to motivate us to finish what we start.
