Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a completed quilted project using the contents of a UFO Mystery Bag. Each participant who donates $10 to the San Francisco Quilters Guild will receive a bag containing an incomplete fabric project … plus surprise mini-gifts in some of the mystery bags! As owner of this bag, you must create a finished fabric project of your choosing by December 7th, 2021. Community Outreach appreciates baby or lap quilts, but this is not a requirement of the challenge. Any fabric project qualifies as long as it is completed, including jackets, placemats, purses, table runners, and of course, quilts.
The rules are simple:
- You must use at least half the items in your challenge bag in a way that shows on the final project.
- You may add items from your own stash or from the free table, but try not to purchase anything new.
- The guild will hold a Virtual Sewcial on Saturday October 9th to help problem-solve and inspire participants to get to the finish line. Register here for the sewcial.
- Projects completed by December 7th will be featured in our December Sew & Tell and entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to a nearby fabric store.
Participants can pick up UFO Mystery Bags at Curbside Outreach on August 21st, September 4th, and September 18th. Contact our secret agent, Maren Larsen, to make other arrangements to get your UFO Mystery Bag.
Should you be unable to complete this mission, you may disavow any involvement in the project. The bags will NOT self-destruct in thirty seconds. It’s up to you to finish the UFO inside. Good luck!
