I belong to a 300+ member guild called Manitoba Prairie Quilters.
We had a UFO challenge that started in December. You took a picture of
your UFO, finished it by the June meeting and were then entered to win a
gift bag. I submitted 10 UFO pictures (I'm always optimistic) and
..........1! At least I finished something!?! Approximately 30 of the
70 UFO's entered for the challenge were completed. I didn't win the gift
bag draw, but my little quilt tied for Viewer's Choice which was a nice
surprise (the 4 fat quarters and $25 prize were an added bonus!). The
pattern for the quilt is in the book Quilted Symphony by Gloria Loughman.
I changed it up a little by doing the beaded curved edge. I'm not a big
paper piecer either, so I just free sewed the last section.
Hopefully I can get a few more finishes this month, especially since there's the added incentive! I wonder how many finishes we will have in total by the end of year? I'm guessing 527. What's your guess?
