FAL 2016 - Quarter 4 Link Up

2016 button 250 best

First of all, a very happy new year to you all! And secondly, I apologise that this blog post is going up rather late - we are actually staying at the beach for a few weeks and my internet access has been sketchy at best. I have a whole load of blog posts I need to write when we get back home, a few finished quilts to share and a few rather exciting things that will be happening in 2017 (including being one of the global hosts for FAL 2017).

For now though, we have made it to the end of the 2016 FAL and it's time to link up your Q4 finishes!

The 2016 FAL is now global - a community of bloggers across the world are jointly hosting the FAL. Our hosts are:
It's time to link up the projects on your 2016 Q4 FAL list that you finished. First, a huge thank you to our fantastic sponsors:

For the 2016 FAL, we also will feature a tutorial week. Here is the schedule so you can visit them all: 
The 2016 Q4 link for your finishes is now open below on my blog and on each of the hosting blogs - you only need to link on one blog for your finish to appear on each blog. Link-up "rules":
  • Add one link for each finish. If you want to link a round up post of all your finishes, use that link to enter one of your finishes and then link the rest of your finishes separately. Please, only one link per finish, as your link is an entry into the randomly drawn prize draws.
  • Please use the 2016 FAL button or the hashtag #2016FAL
  • Please ensure that the photo or blog post you link up contains a link or reference back to your original list so that we can verify your entry (make sure it is from the appropriate quarter)
  • Please become part of the FAL community. Please check out the links of others and comment. We all need encouragement so let's applaud each other. The 2016 FAL Facebook page is here and follow us on Instagram @finishlong and tag your photos #2016fal and #falq2yourname (substitute your name - this makes it easier for us to match your finishes with your lists. 
  • Our hosts will also link their finishes to share in the community, but they are not eligible for any of the prizes.

The Q4 Finishes link will stay open from now thru January 7, 2017 - link up your finishes early and if you have a last minute one, add that one later so you don't miss out. The prizes will be awarded as soon as we can verify all the entries and do the drawings. We will post the winners on each hosts' blog.

Stay tuned for the details for the 2017 FAL. We have a great global community of hosts, some continuing and many joining us for the first time. Start making your Q1 lists for the 2017 FAL lists as the Q1 list link opens on January 8, 2017. I'm actually planning on fully participating in the FAL this year, and trying to knock over a bunch of VERY long term works in progress.
