self paced, sent via email, start now! 

Stop buying new fabric & patterns…..

it’s time to stop the guilt of  ‘collecting more quilt stuff’ and get sewing on those lost and forgotten projects again

What OPC challengers have said…

"I really enjoyed the Orphan Project Challenge. I have done three of them now. It is wonderful to get some projects done that have been on the back burner for so long. I am slowing getting my smaller projects done and out of the way. Becky's suggestions and the wonderful tracking sheets really helped me to see where I needed to "move." I was surprised at how many UFO's I had once I started making a list. It is wonderful to see everyone's accomplishments on the Facebook group! Looking forward to the next one."

"OPC was a very encouraging class. It was great to know that other quilters also had stacks of UFO’s! The printouts were helpful, and the structure helped with making progress."

"We all have orphan projects! This booklet has help me get back on track with some of my projects. It’s has also helped me reinvent some projects. A great way to move those projects from being orphans to finding a home."

There are three problems when quilters STOP sewing:

For your projects to make progress you’ll need a plan. A simple plan that doesn’t overwhelm.  It can’t be complicated and full of steps. And you have to be able to work on what you want, when you want.  That’s what the OPC is all about.

Moving forward, one project at a time.

Keep focused and work on what you already have, saving you time and money. 

You don’t need to completely finish the project you have chosen.  It’s really about getting excited about the project again and moving forward with it. Getting beyond whatever got you stuck and loose interest. 

Depending on the project you choose, there may be one that is really close to being complete- and you’ll end up completing it during the challenge. Awesome! Can’t wait to hear about that. 

If you happen to complete a project on your list, and you have more time left in the challenge- grab another project and get moving forward again. 

Hi. I’m Becky
Founder of the OPC, Patchwork Planner & online quilt group IAQ.

I’m also a fabric collector, pile stacker and am guilty of not finishing a lot of projects!  The OPC was begun to help myself get my own projects moving forward – and quilters love to sew together, so I of course am inviting you to join along side me.
Together we can get organized, release our guilt and move our projects closer to the finish line.


Project Planning and Organization How To's
This is the challenge that will change your sewing room and transform your projects from incomplete to finished.

  • We’ll review our WIP or Orphan projects, learn what they are and how many you are dealing with & come up with our sewing plans. 
  • You’ll learn how to use those leftover quilt blocks from previous projects that have no home. We’ll also be helping you organize your projects and eliminate those piles.
  • You’ll learn how to keep your tracking system going, continue your sewing mojo and momentum.

Plus, there will be check in’s as well as you begin to make progress on those projects again!

Are you ready to: 

> Tackle those piles with a clear plan 

> Organizing your projects with a system that works

> Check off that long project to do list

> Moving forward one project at a time

> Use those extra quilt blocks for a fun new project

> Eliminate that nagging guilt from unfinished projects

> Feel proud about your plan and finally finishing what you’ve started


You'll get access to our exclusive community that helps you keep motivated while making progress on your projects....

We’re a tight-stitched community filled with quilters who will go above and beyond to help you in every step of those projects.

We support each other, motivate each other, inspire each other and help you accomplish the goals you have set during the first week.

"I enjoyed the challenge and I have completed many of the projects on my list and some others I forgot to list. I took some time out to really organize my fabric and I am still working on cutting down my scraps and organizing them."

"Really like the eBook, the format is great-reminds me of online college courses that I have taken, enjoyed seeing everyone's projects at the end. During the challenge I was able to organize my space instead of finishing anything, lol, but since then my quilting productivity has taken off. thank you!"

More from OPC challengers…

"Looking for a quick yet rewarding project, I meet a group of delightful people who, like me, had lots of unfinished projects. I finished a few of my embroidery projects and tossed them in the Christmas gift box. Becky kept us on track and held us accountable. She provided sheets to track what we wanted to finish and what we actually finished. This was great because I got sidetracked and finished some UFOs not on my original list. For the second Orphan Project Challenge, several months after the first one, I decided to clean off a chair that was piled full of projects. LOL. Becky, I piled it full again since the challenge was so successful for me. Time to do it again. Come join us as we share ideas, techniques and decisions for all those UFOs. Make a few new friends along the way!"

"I joined the OPC hoping to tackle some of the unfinished projects that I had piling up. Not only did I get some of my projects done, but I met people on a zoom sew along. We shared projects and ideas while sewing along. Becky takes time to check on how things are going on a regular basis and does live broadcasts which helps to keep you moving forward and inspires you to try some new things. Her pleasant way makes joining in lots of fun and she shared an e-book full of ideas left over blocks. I made several different projects from the book. I highly recommend joining the challenge and I promise that you will not be disappointed."
