2016 UFO Challenge

Hello March! Did you get your February UFO finished and turned in?  I know we had a lot of people who did.  If not, don’t worry, today is a new day and we have a new UFO for you to work on.

This months number from AllPeopleQuilt.com is 3.  So find your list and start getting that UFO done.


Remember if you want to be entered into the drawing at the store we need to see your completed project so we can sign you off.  If you do the assigned project and one of your bonus projects you get an extra entry into the drawing.

Also don’t forget we have UFO Day and UFO Night sessions for you to be able to come in and get help with your project if you need it.  Sign up now to save your seat.

2016 UFO Challenge

UFO Challenge February

January is gone and we have moved into February.  For those of you who are new we are following along with AllPeopleQuilt.com 2016 UFO Challenge. We started last month taking in peoples resolution lists of UFO’s they wanted to complete in 2016. We have 15 people who have turned in their UFO Resolution sheets with us.

For those that turned in their resolution sheets in January we are giving away a prize to those who complete their assigned UFO for the month. Here are a few that we got to see done.

So if you are already on board and following along the assigned UFO for this month is #5.


Remember if want to be in the drawing for the month you need to come in the shop and show us your completed UFO by February 29th.

2016 UFO Challenge

If anyone saw my sewing room they’d know I need a UFO challenge.  I have them stuffed in cubbies, stacked in totes and overflowing on what is supposed to be my cutting table. I know this is a common issue for people who love to craft and sew. So, I’ve decided that people can follow the All People Quilt 2016 UFO Challenge in the shop.  I will give away some goodies every month to help keep you going.

Here is the idea:

You print out the UFO form (here) and fill it in with your project information.

On the first of each month, All People Quilt will announce a randomly selected number between 1 and 12. That number corresponds with the UFO project that you work on for the month.

At the end of the month share your progress with the quilting community by posting blogs and photos of your projects using hashtag #apqresolution and #QM2016UFOChallenge and tag us @Quilting_Mayhem.  To enter for our monthly door prizes you will need to bring in your completed project for us to see and show & tell.  Click here for the rules to qualify for monthly drawings in store and a grand prize drawing at the end of the year.

If you decided to participate they’ve created a badge to post on your social media sites to display loud and proud. 🙂

Also, keep in mind that if you are struggling with your UFO’s or if you just want company while you work on them we have a UFO Survivor day or UFO Survivor night  monthly at the shop to receive help and encouragement with your projects. It is an unstructured class where we are just here to help you if you need it.

Now all that is left is to get started!!

January you will be working on project number 2!
