the name UFO's seems to have such a negative connotation to it. I would like to propose some new names for our Wonderful Works in Progress??? . . . . Future MasterPieces???. . . . . .Future Family Hierlooms???. . . . .and for those projects that just seem to go on forever. . . . .No Longer Fun!!!!! Teeheee. Does anyone else have some ideas?
Well one of the members quite a while ago started calling her project "stupid quilt" because of all the triangles. I have a few "guilt quilts" hanging around that are designated to certain people, but remain unfinished.
For me works in progress are exactly that. And I have several of those going. But the UFOs for me not only stands for unfinished, but for unfinished forgotten objects.
I do like the "master pieces" however. Cause many of my UFO's are because I have hit a snag that needs a little more expertise before I tackle it again.
mine are all WIP's

I like WIPs as well. They won't be UFOs until I am no longer able to work on them.
I like the futuer masterwork one myself to many of them are exactly that and I know what you mean because you hit a snag. That's one of the reasons it took so long to finish the bargello. I had to wait for the class to reopen almost a year later it is only offered every so often on quiltuniversity. But now it is done just no cross because the bargello is to small of a piece of the whole quilt and the cross is much larger. Plus my teacher told me if you look closely enough it looks like a cross is allready there in the bargello design. So now I am wondering if I am going to do just the bias strips of the celtic design or if they are going to be to large.
