Announcing - the 2015 Finish Along!

Today I have a super exciting announcement to share with you about the 2015 Finish-Along.

The Finish-Along was originally started back in 2012 by Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap:

FAL button 2

In 2013, Leanne from she can quilt picked up the baton and really ran with it:

And this year the FAL has been run by Katy at The Littlest Thistle:

Finish Along 2014

All three ladies have done an amazing job of making the FAL the fun and motivating event it is now, and I am thrilled to announce that I am taking the reins for 2015!  

After a year of not focussing quite so much on finishes, I have a mountain of works in progress myself, so I'm really looking forward to completing some of my own finishes and helping you find the motivation to tackle yours!

As in previous years, there will be amazing prizes up for grabs, encouragement aplenty, and some great tutorials at the start of every quarter (so you can plan your next round of WIPs, naturally!).
Please feel free to grab my button and spread the word about the 2015 FAL!

I will be providing more updates as sponsors join the FAL, and you can find all the details on my 2015 Finish-Along page.

In the meantime, hop yourself over to instagram and follow @finishalong - Rhonda is running the instagram account and I believe she's planning a giveaway in the middle of December.

Congrats!!! This is my first year following the Finish along and although I don't finish everything, it is a great motivation.

Yeah, great news, hope to jump on the bandwagon again next year. I totally lost my quilting and blogging mojo and focus!

Wendy @ Wendysquiltsandmore said...

Congratulations! I'll certainly feel some pressure to join in now. Mind you, I have many WIPs to start the year with, so I should be able to finish quite a few things in 2015. This will be the great for great things!

Roll on 2015 and the start of another FAL year...just not too fast, I've still got lots of things on my 2014 Q4 list that I haven't touched!

Congratulations! I will be fully embracing the FAL again next year, it has been invaluable to me this year, I've gone from about 20 wips, to under 10. :o)

Ella said...

Congrats! Thanks to my crafty ADHD, I have lots of new projects added to my pile!

Patchwork and Play said...

Oh, how exciting that you are hosting! I must start writing my lists and going through my WIPs!

Kirsten said...

So great that you hosting the FAL next year - I find that making the lists really helps me to keep track of my projects!

Rachel said...

Exciting news Adrianne! I was already planning on joining in next year, I have one or two things that really should get finished. Looking forward to it!

Mystic Quilter said...

This will be my first time participating and will, I hope, keep me motivated to get my projects finished.
Congratulations on running this for 2015!
By the way I am up in Auckland.

Julie said...

This may be the inspiration I need to stop procrastinating about finishing my to quilts, one for my son and one for me.

Leonie said...

yay for you Adrienne! It will be fantastic no doubt and I'm sure you will bring the same level of encouragement as the other ladies did :)

bee said...

so exciting! I've done the last year on the FAL and it's been super helpful and encouraging. You'll be a great host.

Congratulations on hosting next year's Finish Along. I plan to join in for the first time as we've just moved and unpacked everything that's been in storage for the past three years and I've discovered a bunch of WIPs that need to be finished. Some I hadn't even remembered starting! This will be a great motivation to get those finished up.

Sherry said...

Congratulations on taking on the FAL. I'm thinking this might be the push I need to get my UFO's done.
