Our UFO challenge is up and going!! We have a total of 34 participants in this year's challenge and, are you ready for this?, a total of 665 quilting projects to be finished. Absolutely amazing!
We are being assigned points for our quilts and there are "prizes" being awarded. We get one point for small quilts and two points for large ones. For each quilt finished off your UFO list, you get an entry into a drawing for the evening. Wonder how many points will be earned over this next year? Stay tuned. February saw a total of 41 points from 14 of our participants. That tells you we've been busy since January.
Our co-chairs for this year's UFO challenge have been involving the community to get donations, which gives both the donating business and the guild publicity. At our February 2nd meeting we had prizes donated from Hula's Chinese BBQ and Honey Run Quilters. The lucky participants are Judy Johnson for most points, most quilts finished, who received the dinner from Hula's and Judy Noble won the drawing for having finished at least one quilt and received the batting donation.
So, we are now looking forward to March to see what donations our co-chairs Lynne & Gail will have for us.
Our challenge is finish our quilts. Can you imagine 34 people finishing 665 quilts in a year? We will see if it gets accomplished.
