Thread: When is fabric a "UFO" and when is it a "stash"?

    I know this may not matter, but I want to know what I have.

    I have just started quilting - one quilt and a few other small projects. I have leftovers from these projects.

    I have some fabric people have gifted me with and some I have bought - not really part of a project.

    I also have the fabric for a few quilts and a few other projects - projects I am planning - since I haven't started these, are they UFOs?

    Is the fabric a stash if it is to be used in a project?

    :lol:

    It's UFO when it's started to be something definite -

    It's "stash" when it hasn't been committed to a project.

    UFO's are quilts that have been started but aren't finished.
    A stash is a variety of fabrics that you collect so that you have some to work with when you get an idea for a quilt.
    Hope this helps :D

    Someone said that there is another category: PIGs -- project still in grocery sack!

    I consider something a UFO if I haven't worked on it consistently for a month. I consider it stash if the fabric has no obligations to a project. :)

    These could be considered PIGs if you have the fabric and pattern in a bag.
