UFO Challenge

Prairie Hearts Quilters Guild
Quilted UFO Challenge
A “UFO” is an unfinished object, one that you have started previous to September 6, 2016.

The CHALLENGE is to complete these items to give your Team points, and maybe win a Fat Quarter or two.

Please keep in mind that this challenge is a “Team” effort and it is important that all team members participate in trying to finish the UFOs on their list.
Enter the name of the quilted item (please give some details), along with the size (perimeter in inches) and indicate whether you plan to add a label to the item.

Each item with a label earns an extra point. These completed lists must be returned no later than the next meeting October 4, 2016. At the same time keep a copy yourself of the list as a reminder of what you have to finish and show at the guild. The team that shows the most completed items on their lists will win.  When you bring your finished items to the meeting, show them to the person(s) in charge of this challenge and tell them what you will be showing that evening.

This will give them the opportunity to begin the tally of points for the teams before the showing of the items. This will give everyone a chance to enjoy the quilts when they are presented at the show and share time. Also, the points for each team may be announced after show and share.
The point system is determined by the perimeter size:

Size Quilted Item Score / Point 0 –

60 inches Small Wall Hanging, etc.1

60 – 100 inches Wall Hanging 2

100 – 200 inches Baby Size 4

PLEASE NOTE: This Challenge will begin on the October 4, 2016 meeting, giving the person in charge the time to set up the teams.
