Announcing the UFO Club Winners!

01 April, 2015

No Fooling, the Cary Quilting UFO Club has come to an end.  In total, we had 163 registered UFO projects under 32 quilters.  These ladies worked hard - really hard!  In total 2,300 points were earned (which means that 230 major steps were taken towards finishing those 163 quilts!).  65 quilts were totally completed.  We loved seeing them, and we know you loved getting them d-o-n-e!  

It was a frantic finish, with binding being sewn on in the Cary Quilting parking lot yesterday evening!  Quilts were being brought in right up to our 7 pm closing.  The quilts have been admired, the boxes have been checked, the points have been tallied, and the winners are....

  • She completed 5 UFOs (three from the "blocks" stage!) ... in third place, for a $10 Cary Quilting gift card, with a total of 200 points, congrats to DJ Gass!
  • She added the quilting and binding to 7 projects and also finished another 2 from earlier stages ... in second place, for a $30 Cary Quilting gift card, with a total of 210 points (just edging out DJ), congrats to Cheryl Porter!
  • This prolific quilter took down the competition with a total of 300 points.  She worked on a total of 10 projects, completing 8 of them - some from the very beginning stages!  If her hands still work at all, we hope she'll come by soon to grab her $50 Cary Quilting gift card.  Congrats to our 2015 UFO Club winner, Grace Lents!
Thanks to everyone who played along, and we hope the club gave you the motivation (and the good deals) you needed to "take care of business" and get those quilts back into production.  Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations with us! We will plan another UFO club for 2016 - if you want details, here is what we did this year.  We think it's time to start a new project now!
