UFO Challenge

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
