2019 Finish-A-Long: Q4 List Link Up!

Hello everyone! It is time for Quarter 4 of the Finish-A-Long (FAL)!

As you can see, a new quarter of the Finish-A-Long is starting today!
  If you missed participating earlier in the year, you may still join us now for a brand new start!
 Those of you who have joined us for any of the first three quarters, thank you! 
and I do hope you finished some things and plan to continue on with us for Q4.

So let's start!

You can now link up your list of projects that you want to finish in
Quarter 4 of 2019. We are hoping that the FAL community will inspire you
to work on your unfinished projects this quarter, and to get them
finished before the end of the year!

Our 2019 Finish-A-Long Hosts

The 2019 FAL is hosted by a great community of bloggers. This year our hosts are:

For those of you who are new to the FAL, here is an
explanation: The Finish-A-Long is a community aiming to motivate and
encourage each other to complete those unfinished projects that are
hanging around, sometimes for far too long. At the start of the quarter
you post and link up a list of projects you hope to finish in the next
three months. Then, at the end of the quarter, you link up each
successful finish from your original list.

Each linked up finish is an entry into the draw for wonderful prizes from our sponsors. There is no penalty
for not finishing a listed project, so feel free to make your list as
long or as short as you wish. The 2019 Schedule and Rules for the FAL
are on my permanent 2019 FAL page, let me know if you have any questions.

Make your Q4 List of Unfinished Projects

Time to sort out those projects/UFOs/WIPs that you want to finish over the
next three months!  Take a photo of each one and make your list. 
If you like, you can use our Finish-A-Long Planner to list your projects and keep track of progress.
 It also has all link-up dates for the year, and the hashtags that we use. SUPER handy!
Or use any method that works for you.
 Please ensure that you have at least STARTED your projects!
 ***pulled fabric with a pattern is considered a project started**
  Remember it is only a FINISHED project that will get you an 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.

Post Your Q4 List

Post your list either on your blog, Instagram, or Flickr.
 If posting on social media (Flickr, Instagram), it will be very helpful if you tag your list with
#2019FALQ4yourname (where yourname is unique to you). Using the same
hashtag over the quarter when sharing project progress or finishes helps
the host to make the connection to your original list quickly and easily.

Don't forget to link up your finishes at the end of the quarter! We will
be posting a reminder on the blog and on Instagram, but do keep an eye

Link-up Your Q4 List

The 2019 Q4 link for your list
of proposed finishes is now open below, and on each of the hosting blogs.
 You only need to link your list once, on ONE host
blog, and the link will show up on all the host blogs. If you are using
Flickr or Instagram, post a mosaic of your projects and put your list in
the description. Don't forget to include your unique hashtag.

If you need a little help, Katy of The Littlest Thistle has a great tutorial on how to link up if you need it, and Marci has a post on

Join the FAL Community

We also ask that you become
part of the FAL community. Please check out the links of others - visit
and comment on their lists. We all need encouragement to get those
finishes done, so please share some of your own too.

If you want you can follow us on Facebook: Finish-A-Long and/or on Instagram: @finishalong, too. We'll post encouragement during the quarter and reminders when the finishes link up opens at the end of the quarter.

When creating your list, remember there are no deductions for
not completing something, so - Aim High! Nothing to lose!! 
Let's finish this year with a bang!!!


Feel free to use and share the FAL button at the top and this one too:

Remember: you only need to link up at ONE hosting blog and it will automatically show up on all hosting blogs.
