About the Merit Badge

The Unfinished Object (UFO) Badge is designed to motivate quilters to complete their unfinished quilting projects. Many quilters have projects that were started with enthusiasm but left incomplete due to various reasons. This badge encourages quilters to revisit these projects, apply their skills to complete them, and experience the satisfaction of finishing what they started. By earning this badge, quilters will learn to overcome procrastination, rekindle their creativity, and bring their beautiful projects to completion.


  • Choose an unfinished quilting project that has been set aside for at least six months.
  • Assess the current state of the project and make a list of what needs to be done to complete it.
  • Review the original plans and instructions for the project. Develop a step-by-step plan to complete the project, including any adjustments or changes needed.
  • Ensure you have all necessary materials to complete the project, including fabric, thread, batting, and backing. If any materials are missing or need to be replaced, gather them before continuing.
  • Create a realistic timeline for completing the project, breaking it down into manageable tasks. Set specific goals for each stage of the project to stay on track.
  • Dedicate regular time to work on the project, following the planned steps. Document your progress with photos or notes to keep track of your journey.
  • Identify any challenges or obstacles that led to the project’s unfinished status. Find solutions to overcome these challenges, whether it’s learning a new technique, seeking advice from fellow quilters, or making design adjustments.
