Let’s start the New Year with a bang!! Sign up for the 2014 RCQG UFO Challenge. Go to the RCQG website, download the "UFO Inventory Register" and list 10 unfinished quilting projects you want to complete for 2014. Bring your list and entry fee to the next guild meeting, or mail it as directed below. Motivation is the Key and 2014 is the year to GET IT DONE!

WHAT UFOs QUALIFY? 
Any quilt project that you have actually started (meaning, at least cutting into some fabric) but which remained unfinished as of January 31, 2014 (this year). Any quilt kit that you have purchased will qualify as a UFO for this Challenge (everyone has several of those).

Sorry, an untouched stack of purchased fabric is not a qualifying UFO! “Studies,” “experiments,” samples for practicing a technique are not UFOs either, if you never intended them to be completed items.

ENTRY FEE: $5.00

ENTRY DEADLINE: Join anytime, we are all procrastinators!!! Why do we have so many UFO’s?
