Gathering UFOs

I am gathering my quilt UFOs that I want to finish for 2007. I am starting a UFO challenge in my quilt group. Each person can turn in a list of the UFOs that they would like to try to finish this year. For each UFO on the list, they turn in a fat quarter of fabric. These are all placed in a basket. Each month, the ladies will bring any completed UFO to show us and then she can pick out a fat quarter from the basket. This not only motivates to finish off projects but you can get some fun new fabrics in the meantime.

So far, I have 5 UFOs choosen for the challenge:
1. Quilted calendar
2. Ragged hearts quilt
3. Birds in the Air quilt
4. Flannel toile medallion doll's quilt
5. Pioneer Braid quilt

I am cutting fat quarters to place in the basket for the exchange and deciding on any other UFOs to add to my list.

This is a fantastic idea! i hope it goes over BIG and everyone is motivated! Those finishes become motivating in and of themselves and your UFO's are beautiful unfinished, as it is!

Hoi Heidi,
Hoe vet is een fat quarter? Maar zeker een goed idee om een motivatie te bedenken om UFO's af te maken. P.S.Ik ga beginnen de kat te borduren; Jeanne was er erg enthousiast over (heb haar via de mobiele telefoon een foto gestuurd).liefs Sonja.
