    2013 UFO Challenge of the Month

    This is the brand new page for this year's continuation of our UFO Challenge. The rules are simple: We support and encourage one another in completing our accumulated UFOs.
    All are welcome to hop on this UFO train; we reach out our hands to help you get on. The train will blow it's whistle for each new member and we ring the bell for all the finishes that happen!!
    It doesn't matter how you count your UFO's; it's entirely up to you. No UFO Police allowed here!!!

    Here is my first UFO of 2013; a Sponge Bob comfort quilt. My DGD helped me with this while she was here for the holidays. She is 9 and we had a great time!Name:  Sponge Bob, comfort quilt.jpg

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Official Rules and Regulations for UFO Challenge of the Month 2013

    The way it works: anyone can be a member and there are no penalties if you're busy one month. Try to finish one UFO each month. Once it's finished, post a picture and description here. We'll ooh and ahh. Try to finish another one next month.

    This can also work if you need ideas for how to finish yours or encouragement. I want this to be an area where we can support each other in getting through our UFOs for 2013.

    A few rules/guidelines for the challenge:

    "Finished" means all the way done and ready to use. If you give it away or trade it away, it counts since you're finished with it!

    SWAPPING is NOT part of this challenge. If members want to trade between themselves that's just fine. I mean only that it isn't a part of this and should be done separately between individuals.

    And the way I differentiate a UFO with a WIP - a UFO is something that you put down awhile ago and don't feel a strong desire to pick up again since there are more exciting things to do. So pretty much any of those projects that you put into your closet and forgot about qualify.

    So everyone's challenge/goal: 1 UFO completed by January 31, 2013. Good luck! Here's wishing all of us good luck and LOTS of energy and enthusiasm in 2013!

    So if I read this right we are to ring the bell DING DING DING on your finish wildyard. Thanks for doing the thread. I was thinking the same thing, start one. I am wanting to finish a few more of those ufos I have left behind and I am wathching the stash buster and scrap threads as well. Fun to repor three times you finished something. LOL.

    I'm in again. I'm going to use QM as a GOOD example and start turning out some finishes. Congrats again QM for meeting that very large personal goal last year! Wildyard, Woot,Woot! Thanks for starting us off on the right foot. That is a seriously cheerful quilt. :thumb up:

    wildyard--nice bright quilt.

    I counted my UFOs. There are 13 that I have started sewing, plus 3 that are cut but haven't sewn anything yet. Then there is fabric w/patterns picked for a few more. My goal is to finish at least one quilt a month. Some are so close to being done that I *should* be able to finish 2 some months. I am trying really hard not to cut into something new until I have finished a couple of my UFOs.

    Well sandi, you take an unfinished project, you look at it, fall in love with it again (this could be easy or hard) you sit down and take one seam at a time and you sew it together, then you get the pleasure of quilting it and putting on the binding so you can report to us how wonderful it is finished, then you get to love it, squeeze it, and snuggle under it. Does that sum it up? Then if you need encouragement along the way or advice, we are here to help. I am all for ya, you can do one this month, I just know you can. So, what project you going to grab, now just grab one, doesn't matter which, just do it. So, have ya yet?
