UFO Guild Challenge 2017

2017 The Scrappy Year at Camaco Quilt Guild

We're considering unfinished projects scraps this year, okay???

This year's challenge is to get you quilting and finishing up those previously started sewing projects, loose ends, ufo's, works in progress(WIP) or whatever YOU call those projects laying around your house!

Here are some guide lines to help keep it fair and fun. 

Definition of a UFO:  a sewing project you have
  1. purchased a pattern AND selected fabric for prior to January 2017, BUT haven't started yet.
  2. a project YOU started previously and haven't finished yet, no matter how close to completion it is, as long as it isn't finished and able to be utilized as it is currently.
Definition of completed UFO: Completely done, quilted, binding on, FINISHED, ready to use. If not a quilt project it must be entirely  ready to be utilized for it's intended use, ex: purse, a garment, home decor, etc.

Definition of sewing project: something made with needle, thread and fabric.

Time frame for finished projects to be counted: January 2017 thru January 10, 2018.

There will be a log book at every meeting for you to register and log your finished projects. MAKE SURE YOU USE IT, you will not get credit if you forget!! 


There will be 3 gift certificates awarded in January 2018! 

All prizes will be awarded for the work completed within the specified time line. If you've already completed a UFO this year, please log it!!! 


The MOST UFO's completed by a member. 

The most square inches quilted (length X width divided by .015) This ones just for quilts. (We ARE a quilt guild after all!!)

The oldest UFO completed, the one started the farthest date from 2017, must be started and completed by the member. 

**Please keep projects to personal projects, no work done on customers or friends quilts!**  One prize per person.

Let's share our progress at meetings and on Facebook. Let's cheer each other on, or if you like some friendly competition...BRAG!!! Let's have some laughs and fun with our hobby and friends!!

The program committee will keep track of the projects completed and post some updates throughout the year to keep it interesting! I sure hope everyone joins in and gets some old projects done while having a bit of fun and winning a prize!! 

Let's get sewing!!
