    What should I do with this UFO??

    I found this UFO in a box. I started it years ago and never finished it. I really like the colors cut can't decide on whether I should go ahead and make a quilt out of it or if I should just turn it into a table topper a round table that I have. What do you think? Or maybe it should just go back inside the box? Or maybe it would make a great big pillow?

    I think it depends if you have the material to finish. A large pillow would be a good idea to just make it useable and not spend a lot of time of it. The center of a quilt with borders could make a lap quilt. Black and white are IN so finish into something that can be used not in a box.

    I don't know, it's a pattern that i can't bring myself to even try. But you've got this far, why not finish as you started?

    I have a round table and I think a table topper like that would be very eye catching. It wouldn't take as long as a lap or full sized quilt would and then would be DONE.

    Do you feel like finishing it? I think I might take off the 2 black triangle sections and pillowcase it as is. The points will look pretty hanging over a round table.

    Finish this UFO! It would be a big shame to put it back inside the box. It would make a cool table topper, pillow or quilt. Depends on how much more work you want to put into it. Please post when finished, would love to see what you decide to do
