UFO’s

Quilters’ UFO Challenge 2020

“Come Join our UFO Parade on Facebook in 2020!”

This is a chance to turn five UFOs into quilts in only one year!

▪ Describe the finished quilts on the entry sheet. Make sure that No. 1 is the one you want to work on first. Give enough information to easily identify each quilt. For example, “green churn dash” is a better description than “Bill’s birthday quilt.” Fill out the list and make a copy for yourself so you know what to work on next!

“Finished”” means quilted, bound and labeled.

▪ The first quilt, due on January 8, 2020 will be No. 1 on your list. It may be turned in early. After that, one quilt will be due every two months, except the fourth quilt will have 3 months because we have no meeting in July. The order of the quilts will be chosen randomly from the remaining numbers. That means that the second quilt due will not necessarily be #2 on your list.

▪ When you turn in your first UFO for inspection, you will be given a ribbon and a button to attach showing that quilt is finished. You will receive another button for each UFO as it is recorded as finished. There will be drawings for prizes after each due date is reached; therefore, all who finish even just one quilt will be eligible to win a prize that month. Other prizes will be awarded when the year is up.

Due Dates: January 8 March 11 May 13 August 12 October 14

As of the end of January we have 37 members signed up for our 2020 UFO Challenge and 28 quilts completed!!
It’s not too late to join the parade! You’’ll find the entry form in the newsletter so fill out your paper work and bring in the entry fee of $10.00 to the guild meeting.
