2009 UFO Challenge

Among the 2009 challenges, the guild will have a UFO challenge. I imagine that there may be a few of us with some UFO's lurking in the closet, so let this challenge be a good reason to start completing them! Here's how it works. At the Jan. and Feb. meetings, (see Suzanne Elliott) everyone who wishes to participate will write down the names of the UFO's and the level of completion. Each person will decide what "completed" means to them. You may decide that for some projects, just completing to the top stage may be your "Yeah, it's DONE!!!" For others, it is all the way -- quilted/bound/finished. What you cannot do is apply 2 levels to one project– Choose one, either: 1) complete top, 2) complete quilting, 3) complete binding. One UFO equals one level of completion.(a pieced top, quilted, or bound). You can mix and match levels for all your projects. Think about kits, sets of blocks, quilt tops, etc. For every project that is completed that person will put his/her name in the hat. At the Christmas party, there will be a drawing for a prize or maybe prizes.

Although Show & Tell is not technically required, it would be GREAT for each person to show their completed UFO at the guild meeting when they put their name in the hat. Inspiration to us all!!!!
Suzanne Elliot has graciously offered to be in charge of this challenge. She will keep the UFO sign up board and the names for the drawing.

It's definitely going to be a challenge!
