What Would You Do?

There are several reasons a project turns into a UFO. It can be waiting for border or backing fabric, or maybe it requires a new technique or skill or maybe something interrupted the work and it gets put aside.

I started this project in Fall 2019. It was a table runner from Carole’s Autumn Jubilee. I like the pattern and I was keeping up.

Autumn Jubilee 2019 - Fall Table Runner (still needs Borders) #AutumnJubilee2019

But then I added borders and I got stumped. There was an option for one border or two. I was thinking of adding 2 borders – a small one and a bit larger.


I do like the gold/yellow small border, but my mojo left me when trying to find an outer border. So it’s been hanging on my wall ever since. I do not have any more of the green and gold fabrics I used and not sure about the leaves. I’ve been hoping something would click, but nothing has inspired me.

I’m thinking maybe removing the gold/yellow small border and just adding a little bigger border in cream?? Maybe I can find some cream with leaves fabric for a single border??

This one may stay a UFO for a while.

Today feels like a backing & sandwiching day. Maybe cutting and pinning a border on a top or two. We’ll see how it turns out.

Happy Stitching!

  3. Leave the gold and add a dark red border. This will tie the reddish fall leaves to the whole piece. Looks wonderful with those prints!
