    HELP!! 9 degree wedge

    I need help on how to finish out my quilt. I bought a 9 degree ruler set at the quilt show and have used it to make an almost like and s. I did like a circle but then instead of putting the two halves together to get a circle, I made an s. But now I have realized I do not know how to make it into a regular quilt top. I feel stupid but am drawing a blank.

    Any suggestions would be great

    you can applique it to a background square or rectangle. Or you can bind it as it is if you like the shape for a table topper. Use bias binding to go around the curves.

    I like the bias binding idea--maybe use a color from the main fabrics.

    It sounds like you may have made a Spicy Spiral! You could sandwich, quilt and bind it and it becomes a great table runner. this is the one I made last Christmas. I would post a piture for you if only I knew how to do it.

    You would sandwich it, trim it down to match the top, and then use bias binding to finish it

    Here's one I made. I appliqued it to the purple background and appliqued the center circles, which were not yet done in this photo.
