2009-2010 UFO CHALLENGE
Do you need some motivation to complete those UFO’s (Unfinished Objects) that are overtaking your
sewing apace? Then this is the challenge for you!!
Pick 8 of your UFO’s that you want to complete in 2009-2010 and list them in no particular order.
Every month we will pick a number and the corresponding number of your list will be the UFO you
will work on. If you bring the completed quilt or garment and show it at Show and Tell in the
designated month, your name will be entered in a drawing for some nice monthly prizes, and if all are
completed there will be more prizes in June. The Executive Board has very generously allocated funds
to purchase lots of prizes.
But even if you do not win a prize, think of what a winner you will be to have those UFO’s finally

done to complete each item (add borders, sandwich and quilt, sew on a label, etc.)
2. What if I don’t have 8 UFO’s?
Answer: Write down as many as you have leaving some numbers blank. The month we draw your
“blank number” you can get a head start on another project.
3. How will I know if my UFO’s are acceptable for the challenge?
Answer: As a MINIMUM, you must need to add binding and label for your project to be considered a
UFO for this challenge. The item must be a quilted item to qualify.
4. Can I substitute one UFO for another?
Answer: No—that is why they are numbered and why we have a copy of your list!
5. How will I know which number to work on?
Answer: The number will be chosen at a guild meeting and will be printed in the next newsletter. For
example, the first number will be drawn in October, printed in the nex
