Want your quilt-in-progress featured on Quilting Arts TV?
Do you have an unfinished art quilt (otherwise known as a
UFO for UnFinished Object) that’s got you stumped on how to complete? Have
you stuffed it in the back of a dresser drawer in the desperate hope that if
left in the dark long enough, it’ll magically transform into something akin to
a fine wine?
I’m here to help you. We are introducing a new segment to
Quilting Arts TV:
“Save my UFO!”
Here’s your chance to have your unfinished art quilt
featured on Quilting Arts TV—and to get advice from the pros on how turn your
UFO into a masterpiece!
How to participate:
1. Upload a picture (gif or jpeg) of your UFO in the "Save my
UFO!" Photo Gallery by February 16. **Note: You must be logged in on the site to see the upload option. If you are not signed in, you will not see the upload option appear on your screen.** Here is the direct link to the “Save My UFO!” Gallery:
2. Share your story behind your quilt, what you had
intended, and where you think you may have gone awry. We’ll select a few quilts
for this next Quilting Arts TV taping (March 1-5, 2010).This series begins airing the end of June.
3. I will notify the
artists that their UFOs were selected right here on my blog on Wednesday,
February 17. Please note that if your quilt is selected it must be shipped to
us and arrive in our office no later than Wednesday, February 24.
If we don’t select yours, don’t worry; we plan to bring more
UFOs to successive filmings, plus have well respected quilt artists give you
advice for your quilt right here in the Quilting Arts forums. And, by watching
this new segment on Quilting Arts TV, we hope you’ll be inspired and encouraged to tackle your own UFOs.
We hope you’ll hurry up and post your UFO!
