Final Call for UFOs – From Quilter’s Stashes, Closets and Area 51!!

We’re getting down to the wire with our UFO challenge and looking for more entries: our quilt detecting antenna detect UFO’s everywhere… we know they are out there!

Quilting Gallery and Quilting Is Murder teamed up earlier this year and created a challenge to quilter’s everywhere: finish up a UFO and you could win a bernette 25 sewing machine. Remember, you don’t have to totally finish your UFO: just make significant progress. The goal is to quilt and have some fun while doing it. Read about the Challenge here.

Here is the link to our Flickr group. Take a minute and click through the photos and add yours to the entries.

Spool_dust queen finished hers already! A big hurray goes out to her. :)

justcrafty1 has BEADS on her quilt!! We love beads!!


Ten Quilts has a wonderful set of Jacob Ladder blocks she’s pulling together: let’s give her some friendly kudos and encouragement to get them quilted.

thePieceCorps has VeeDub group of block ~ blocks of VW bugs she’s putting together. Fun!!


Hurry – get your UFO entry in: it can be anything from a quilt to a table runner to an oven mitt ~ we all have a UFO or 25, so there is no excuse for you to pull one out and git ‘er done.

Chief Inspector Jean’s UFO update: “I haven’t touched my UFO since putting it up for inspection on the Flickr site…. I’d better get moving! My entry is just there to give me incentive: it will not be considered to win, of course. However, I did finish up a table runner last week as I made room to move my UFO quilt into the sewing area….”

Deadline to submit your quilt photos to the Flickr group is this Saturday, February 11th. Be sure to leave a note in the discussion too with your official entry info.

    Thanks for the props! I have been burning the midnight oil to get the center of the top quilted (my definition of finished for this challenge) and seeing this post this morning totally made dragging myself out of bed for work today worth it. Since I’m going away for the weekend I will have to finish and take photos tonight and post them by tomorrow. You can see more progress photos and the three new-to-me techniques I’ve used on this quilt at my blog at Ten Quilts!

    The beads on that quilt look brilliant. It visually brings the viewer right into the quilt show.
