In 2009 and 2010 Canberra Quilters ran a program where you signed a pledge to complete an UnFinished Object (UFO) by the end of the year. It will be running again in 2013.
Whether you call it a UFO or a WIP (Work in Progress) most people have something started that has stalled for some reason and they would like to finish. Here is your chance to get motivated. Sign the pledge and commit to finishing!
The rules are simple – sign the pledge certificate published in the December newsletter and hand in to Elizabeth Rose by the February 2013 evening meeting (7th Feb). You are committing to complete your quilt by November 2013 and reveal it at either (or both) the Wonderful Wednesday meeting on 20 November 2013 or the evening meeting on 5 December 2013.
You will need to nominate a specific project on the pledge and be ready to show the completed quilt at the meetings mentioned above. You may choose to show the incomplete UFO and tell the story at a meeting between now and February 2013.
You have until February 2013 to make the pledge and you can nominate more than one project to complete. Blank certificates will also be available at the meetings.
To help you stay motivated and work on your UFO the 3rd and 4th Wednesday afternoon drop-ins will be designated “UFO Days” in 2013. Come along for some help and to offer support for others.
