February's Quilting your Legacy Monthly Challenge is U.F.O. Projects.
First, you may be wondering, what in the world is a U.F.O. project?
U.F.O. Stands for Un-Finished Objects, objects meaning projects.
A U.F.O project is any unfinished sewing project.
It's a project that you've started but ran out of time or didn't like one of your fabric color choices.
Perhaps you need to rip out a seam or two because of a sewing error but don't have the energy to go back and fix it, or maybe you got excited about a different project and got bored with the U.F.O Project in question, but there are also many more reasons.
The types of projects are not limited to;
- Table toppers
- Hand stitching projects.
If a sewing project doesn't spark me joy, I'm less likely to complete it.
If I get frustrated or a new sewing project looks more enticing then, I typically place it down on my sewing room bookshelf and move onto the next project with high expectations to go back to it, but I don't stress if I don't.
Do you do the same?
Well! Not this month, February's sewing challenge is to pick back up our previously started projects and complete them.
I challenge you to go through your Un-Finished Object Projects, take a photo of them, and write a short description of what is needed to complete the project. Plus, for extra credit, who will you gift it to or where in your home are you going to place it?
Here's the deal, sometimes a project doesn't work out. Try not to feel guilty about abandoning it. If it helps, donate the fabric or turn it into something else. Or swap or give it away to someone.
Then ask yourself what you learned from it and move on. We don't have time to wallow in guilt.
However, for February's Quilting your Legacy Challenge, we're challenging you to go back through your previously started sewn projects and ask yourself the below questions to get the project completed before the end of the month.
Here's the Challenge:
- Find a U.F.O. Project
- What is needed to complete the project?
- Where will you get the materials, or when will you find the time to complete the project?
- Who will you gift the project to after completion, or where will you place it in your home?
- Please take a photo and add it to the Facebook Group. Then declare what, where, and who statement for the project.
Here we go! Let's dig out those U.F.O. Projects and complete them.
Best of Luck! Here are more details on how to enter and win the $30—gift Certificates.

"My favorite part about the monthly challenge is the ability to sew with like-minded people from all over the nation and to complete a project that perhaps I usually wouldn't try." Quoted by someone brilliant.
Quilting your Legacy is a mindset and a way of life. I challenge you, and as I'm challenging myself to think outside of the box when it comes to all stitching projects. I hope you'll join me on the adventure!
