UFO Challenge

The UFO ChallengeHow it Works in 2022

The UFO Challenge is on again! Send a list of your UFOs to Barb M and send photos of your finished quilts to Barb M and Judy S for the Show and Tell presentations at our Spring Zoom meetings. See the membership list for email addresses.

There is no charge to enter your UFOs this year.

Each finished UFO entered gives you a chance to win a prize at the June 2022 luncheon.

How It Works

  • Members sign up at meetings to participate in the UFO Challenge.
  • The Challenge finishes with a draw at the annual Christmas Luncheon.
  • It’s a toonie for each project entered in the challenge, as many as you like.
  • Bring your finished projects to Show and Tell at meetings during the year.
  • Let the organizers know that your UFO is finished.


Each finished project earns you a chance to win a prize.  But the biggest prize may be the satisfaction you feel when your project finally crosses the finish line!

What is a UFO?

A UFO is an UnFinished Object involving patterns, fabric, quilt sandwiches that need the trimmings, and other unfinished projects waiting for their turn to emerge and shine as beautiful, finished creations.

  • PHD = Project Half Done
  • WIP = Work In Progress
  • WISP = Work In Slow Progress
  • WIVSP = Work In Very Slow Progress

Not technically UFOs:

  • HSY = Haven’t Started Yet
  • WHIMM = Works Hidden In My Mind

Maybe these projects should remain UFOs!

  • WIWMI = Wish It Would Make Itself
  • WOMBAT = Waste of Money, Batting, and Time
  • WWIT = What Was I Thinking
