Last week’s Quirky Question was, “If we all traded UFOs, what’s the one UFO you’d give away—and why?” Here’s the winning response:

“I currently have 97 UFOs and you want me to pick one! Technically, they aren’t **MY** UFOs – they belong to my husband because he challenged me to make 100 quilt tops and HE would purchase a long arm and do the quilting! I started in 2010 and have almost met the challenge! He was able to purchase a floor model at a quilt show for considerable discount; however, we have not been able to set it up at home yet (various issues) to start practicing and finishing all those quilt tops.  We are hoping to get it going this spring and those UFOs will begin to go out to their respective charities.”

Last week’s winning comment was written by Lois. Congratulations, Lois—look for an email about how to get your free eBook. (And best of luck to your husband!)
