Congratulations to all the winners!! Thank you for joining us in 2017, we truly hope the Finish-A-Long has helped you finish up those works in progress this last year.

A special thank you to our hosts this past year for all of their hard work and time.  A big thank you the sponsors for 2017.  Last but not least thanks to those of you that have played along with us during this past year and previous years, the Finish-A-Long wouldn't be here if it weren't for all of you and your WIP's and finishes!

We hope that you are joining us in 2018, the first quarter is about half-way through so you still have plenty of time to finish up those projects.  If you missed the first quarter link up, please consider joining us in April when the second link up opens.

New Year, new Finish-A-Long List.  

It makes for the ideal time to sort out all my projects and figure out which are going to get finished this quarter (or this year even!).  This is a rather comprehensive list and I don't realistically expect to get them all ticked off but you never know what I might want to work on - I certainly I have plenty of choice.

Without further ado the list:

1.  Secret sewing - made up of these gorgeous fabrics (plus some I am hopefully getting tomorrow!)


2.  25th Anniversary Silver Challenge - 10" x 20" piece containing silver for local Quilt Club show in March - I have an idea and I have silver fabric!
