A UFO out of the basket and onto a table.

I finally got my act together and pulled out a few of my UFO's and actually finished one. Yay!!!
This is a table runner with the plait effect....I have no idea what it is called but is a lot of fun to sew.
I am happy its done and was undecided as to how I would finish it and ended up doing Stitch in the ditch and am glad I did as it turned out ok. I have another one that I need to finish too and so will get to that one maybe tomorrow.


Hugs to all........Vicki

Congratulations, it looks great Vicki & a UFO that is no more. I just did a list of UFO's on my blog & got to No 22. I feel like I should enter a 12 step program of something.Maybe we quilters are beyond help... xx

HI Vicki. Lovely table runner! I think that pattern is Pioneer Braid- I saw it in an old quilting mag years ago. I have never tried it but it looks very effective.! :)

So pretty, Vicki! I've always known that design as Pioneer Braid - it was one of the first quilts I saw and wanted to make, and I never have, lol! It's lovely!
