Quilters and Their UFO’s
15 Quilters of the Quiltsy Team have joined together to encourage, support, and promote one another while we tackle our concealed UFO’s in our quilting studios.
I have also joined in on the fun too! (making it a total of 16)
Why do Quilter’s have UFO’s???
If you aren’t’ a quilter or other crafty DIY’er you may not have clue what UFO’s are…a hint…these have nothing to do with Area 51
No, I don’t have any space ships hiding out in the garage or cellar…
I have a few…a few too many 🙂
UFO’s are Unfinished projects.
There are as many reasons to have them tucked away as there are quilters.
Life gets busy, sometimes we lose interest in a project, sometimes the project just needs to “marinate” on the wall.
But at the end of the day, they need to be taken care of .
One way or another!
And the Quiltsy Team 2017 UFO Promotion is just the kick in the butt I needed to start working on mine.
What’s the Quiltsy Team?
The Quiltsy Team is a group of talented Quilters, who are also Entrepreneurs and owners of Etsy Shops.
Etsy Teams are a community within Etsy where you can connect with others and share information about running a business, get advice, support, and gather to socialize. We support each other on The Quiltsy Team by sharing each others work.

Back to the UFO 2017 Promotion.
What’s is this all about?
Each of us has been given the task of finishing one UFO each month.
Once it’s complete we post it within our group and share each others projects on our Facebook page.
At the end of the year, we’ll have a fabric swap for those who complete a UFO each month.
Why do you share items by the competition?
Well, there is a lot of competition out there that is true.
Here are just a few statistics I found
- There are also A LOT of internet users…7,340,159,492, in 2016…
- 1.86 billion active monthly users on Facebook
- 342,000,000 active users on Twitter…
I think that is probably enough to go around for everyone 🙂
Not everyone likes everything.
You may like colorful quilts, but maybe pastels are more your style.
Maybe you love primitive or traditional, maybe modern is more to your taste.
We all have different talents and styles – something for everyone
even if you aren’t a quilt connoisseur – a Quiltsy Team Member probably has something you’ll love!
Completed UFO’s means more room in the studio and more space to get creative!
So, how many UFO’s do you have lurking about???
