2014 UFO Challenge!

Hi, and welcome! I thought I’d celebrate my birthday this year in a special way, by giving away a quilt. To enter, all you have to do is finish! Any sewing UFO that you finish before June 11, 2014, will earn you an entry into the drawing. All you have to do is share a picture of your finished project in the Flickr group. And I mean FINISHED! Quilted, bound, and everything! If it’s a garment, it must be hemmed and ready to wear. Finished means finished.  (side note- don’t forget to label your quilts, it’s important guys)

We’re relying on the honour system here, guys, so please.. Don’t cheat! I’ll know if you’re lying.. (really I won’t, but how could you sleep at night if you brought dishonesty into quilting?)

For the purposes of this giveaway,  UFO means that you started it before 2014, and finished it this year.

That’s it.

So, in summary:

1. Any UFO (unfinished object) started before 2014

2. Add a picture of your finished object, or “FO” to the Flickr Group

If you haven’t yet, check out the group for some pretty awesome entry pics!

Now, GO QUILT SOMETHING!! there’s a quilt to be won!

    So Disappearing Pinwheels won’t count. Guess I shouldn’t rush to finish it. I do have several things I can complete though.

    Fingers crossed I’ll be able to get my sampler quilt quilted/bound by then! I started it about a year and half ago and finally have the top done, so now I need to finish piecing the back and baste/quilt/bind it.

    Intriguing! I just counted yesterday that I have 4 tops ready for basting. Yeah. Hoping to finish at least some of them to enter! 🙂

    Daisy, you are too generous. Let’s see, we started scrapitude in 2013, so that counts! I have the square blocks done, only the triangle blocks and sashing’s and… to go. Let’s see if I can finish it. What a treat it would be to win a Daisy Quilt.

    How generous and what a great way to celebrate your birthday! May I enter a UFO from 2011 that I completed in February 2014 or does it need to be a UFO that gets completed between March 5th and June?

  7. I have finished three things this year. Two were barely UFOs since I began them Oct or Nov 2013 but one is a doozey… doosie… whatever… I started it in 2007 so it definitely qualifies

    I have a bunch of UFO’s, they are overtaking my sewing room! This is great motivation to get at least one or two of them done before June. Thanks for doing this!
