2016 Finish-A-Long :: Q4 Now Open!

2016 button 250 best

Seriously, how can it already be the 4th quarter of 2016? We've got some major sewing still left to do before the year is over, right?  Join us in the 2016 FAL, where your global co-hosts are:
For those of you who are new to the FAL, it is a place to find motivation and encouragement to complete those unfinished projects you have stashed about. Every quarter you post a list of projects you hope to finish in the next three months, and then at the end of the quarter, you post a link from your blog, Flickr or Instagram of each successful finish from your original list. Each finish is an entry for wonderful prizes from our sponsors.

There is no penalty for not finishing a listed project, so feel free to make your list long or short, as you wish. The 2016 Schedule and Rules for the FAL are on my permanent FAL page. Be sure and let me know if you have any questions.

Here are the sponsors for Q4 of the FAL - you can see each of their prizes listed under their logo. They are all so generous and supportive - do consider visiting them and saying thank you.

So did you enjoy the 2016 FAL Tutorial Week? Share your thoughts in the comment section below. If you have a tutorial that you would like to share, please let me or another host know.

Now round up those projects you want to finish this quarter. Just take a photo of where you are now on each project, and make your list. Please only include projects that you have at least started - pulled fabric with a pattern or plan, and remember that it is finished projects that will get you entry toward the above listed prizes. So while we love to see your bee blocks, the "finish" is when they are a completed, usable project.

It is very helpful if you tag your Q4list as #FALQ4yourname. The 2016 Q4 link for your list of proposed finishes is now open below below and on each of the hosting blogs. You only link your list once, on one blog - and that link will show up on all of the blogs.

If you are using Flickr or Instagram, link a mosaic and put your list in the description. Katy of The Littlest Thistle has a great tutorial on how to link-up if you need it.

We also hope that you will be an active part of the FAL community. Check out the links of others and comment as you can. We all need encouragement to get those finishes done!

The Q4 linky party will stay open until 11 pm EST, October 16, 2016. As we are global, you might want to check your time zone to determine your last possible time to link. Remember: you only need to link up on ONE hosting blog and it will automatically show up on all hosting blogs. So let's do this thing!
